Get over yourselves

Aundrea is a crime survivor telling her story, not an actor. Criticising her language in this podcast? Totally repulsive behaviour. Kaylee Sawyer was an absolutely blameless victim of a horrendous crime. Bringing her race into it? Even more repulsive.

Poorly written and produced

I’m a true crime junky and listened to this on a road trip. I found myself nodding off more than once. It was too full of fluff, and the interviews weren’t compelling. The journalist had a great voice but sounded just like she was reading off a script, but in a very dramatic voice. Her narration when on site at places was full of cliches and unnecessary. It was a very sad story, but could have been made into a much more interesting podcast.

Great job!

Great podcast, well put together, easy (as far as flow and voices, not the actual story!) to listen to. Great for any true crime lover.
