Customer Reviews

Good podcast, but ditch the 'expert'

An interesting podcast. But the expert is clearly an actor. And her annoying 'vocal fry' is incredibly distracting!

Not worth it

A lot of overproduction.
Have to agree bout the 'expert', very poorly delivered and really not needed. Get someone with actual insight and interest at the least.
So many better 'casts out there in this genre.
Ruined by the ads.
Complete nuisance

Where to begin? Vague and uninformative

I've heard some fantastic podcasts on some of these murderers, podcasts that are thoroughly well researched inviting experts who have written in depth books on the killers in question to give their opinions and explanations to the events that caused these killers to murder and why they were caught.

This isn't one of those fantastic podcasts. It's rushed and vague...seems to have no substance and reads like a short essay or article you find in a newspaper or magazine. The 'expert' has absolutely no qualifications to be there, is horribly phoney and rehearsed to the point it sounds like a cheerful actor selling something and actually detracts from what I actually wanted to hear. It honestly feels like these people are watching a documentary, taking a few excerpts and sound clips, and using this as a basis for an episode and trying to dissect it in twenty five minutes, it feels like none of this is properly researched.

I think my bone of contention is the first Aileen Wournos episode here...it's just under 30 minutes long and seems to have actually just omitted ANY actual real important information regarding the murders - you can't take a massively complex case like this and just push it into 28 mins and expect a thing to sound cohesive but that's exactly what they did. Doesn't include dates, how victims were killed (other than Mallory), when/how they were found. Goes into Aileen's young life but barely, omits things like the allegations of child abuse, her being kicked out and living on the streets, it skimmed massive portions of this woman's life which gives a feel for exactly why she became the way she was. It feels to me like the people making this podcast didn't even bother cracking open a bloody book on the subject but cleaned everything from Wikipedia and a Nick Broomfield documentary. They added pointless sound clips instead of giving us actual information and details! Why do I want to hear about how "experts" think her conversation with Mallory went? Tell us about what she CLAIMED he did...but they skimmed by that and wastes two minutes of air time with bad voice actors.

Honestly it feels to me it's pointless doing podcasts on these complex cases if you're going to condense things, juj them up with horrible voice clips and leave out all the important stuff. Needs a complete overhaul. If you want a GOOD murder podcast, go to Generation Why, they actually research their subjects.
