Top Notch

Exquisitely researched, Marie does a great job taking a fresh look at a story a lot of True Crime fans may know. Reminiscent of the quality of S-Town - if you’re a fan of that type of podcast you’ll like this!

Nope

I was looking forward to this podcast, until I hit play. After listening to other podcasts, I realize the tremendous talent other podcasters have at delivering a story. Unfortunately Marie is not one of them.

Hard to take seriously

It’s a quirk of mine I guess but in the very first episode Ms Mayhew said something was “understanded,” instead of “understood.” Then in the second episode she referred to Paul Freshour as Paul Freshouser. So if the writing is this full of errors, how can anyone take anything else too seriously? I’ll pass on the rest.
