Great idea, poor execution.
Too short, repetitive and lacking any real meat
I'm drawn in and then it's over. It's much too repetitive and lacking any real substance. I want longer episodes not snippets. Disappointed.
I'm riveted!! So good, we need more podcasts like this! Creative storytelling, fascinating investigations, great length & pacing... can't wait for more.
