Exploitative, cruel, and no one knows anything (s1 review)

The host wonders at the beginning of season 1 whether or not doing this story is an act of exploitation or an act of compassion.

It’s an act of exploitation when you have no content for an episode and decide to have a sketch artist draw the missing boy aged up, and show that to the family and record their reaction of their statistically likely dead son if he was alive.

It’s an act of exploitation, when no one questions the psychic, or the validity of psychics or why the hell psychics pop up like cockroaches to families of missing people. What kind of a reporter doesn’t ask those questions?

Someone knows something doesn’t know who have answers or what anyone knows. They don’t answer anything. After the first three episodes, and until the last two nothing has been gained, and in case you get bored, they talk to the family.
I think it’s cruel to impose and implant yourself and reopen the wounds of a family and not find answers to anything.


I really love this show because it is seriously built and does not forget any king of aspect to the subject. I must say that I fell for the social side as it is not presented as engaged but factual.

Thank you David.

Very well done

This podcast is well researched and fairly presented. It’s obvious that David is invested in these cases, and that passion tempered with journalistic caution make for a compelling narrative.
