Updates?

Where is Season 3? Where are the updates on Tara and Krystal? Am I the only one?

The sound quality is too bad

I might like this podcast. I don’t know. I can only hear half of it. I understand phone interviews present challenges but large swaths of this are unintelligible

Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive

This podcast could have been 12 episodes shorter than what was released. Several episodes simply rehashed previous episodes without providing substantially new material. Even the “update” episode was recap of the whole season. Additionally, the choice to play entire phone conversations contributed to the unnecessary length of the podcast. A sound bite and subsequent summary of the phone calls would have sufficed. Similarly, playing audio with an altered voice to then play the same audio with the actual voice was redundant. Lastly, the voice-over or “warning” voice sounded like someone making a spoof of crime podcasts-reaching too far to sound dramatic.
