Audio is painfully bad

The audio quality is so poor. I don’t comprehend why the creator of this podcast didn’t fix the issues on the first or second episodes.

Hard to listen to

This podcast could have been 8 episodes, but it’s 20+. Unedited monologues, uneventful phone calls, dragging along between ads.... there are about 5 interesting things that happen but you have to forfeit hours of your life to get to them. Towards the end they stretch it so far it’s actually painful to listen to. Also tons of unnecessary footage the podcast host included that praises how great his podcast is. Do you hear other great podcasts doing that? Not worth the investment of time, not even close. Listen to Serial or Dr. Death or Dear John or something with any consideration for production value.

Exceptional

Anyone who starts with season 1 will grow such a fondness for Payne and the amount of work he put into everything. I love how nothing is kept out while reviewing the evidence so you can hear what exactly they have or don’t. The fact that this case is where it is today is because of this amazing host! Anything Payne has his hands in, I’m a fan! Keep up the amazing work, and ignore all the people saying it’s about money! They haven’t been there from the beginning! Amazing podcast with a host of integrity!! ❤️❤️❤️ this show!
