Murder Podcast Junkie

I’m a murder podcast junkie and I’ve listened to A LOT of them! This one is SOOO good! I normally let the build up so I can binge them, but I can’t with this one because I have to listen as soon as they’re released!

Frustrating and disappointing.

Bear brook gets two stars because the production values are high. The storytelling is terribly paced, repetitive and woefully incomplete. Many minutes are wasted with the writer sharing his own stories about reporting the case – this would be OK if they were interesting stories, but they are not. Obvious questions will jump out at you that are never asked. Why didn’t police try to track the origin of the barrels or question the land owner? What, specifically, did the amateur sleuths contribute? Who is “Lisa” and how did they find her? Did the podcaster try to talk to her or research her? (Is she even alive today?) By episode three I was tearing my hair out. This is the first time I have wanted to speed up playback to listen to a podcast, just to get past the tiresome repetition of “wow, this case was cold for 15 years...” and such. The story picks up considerably in episode 5, but the content, the relative attention given to some details vs. others, is still weirdly uneven. If you are a diehard true-crime listener, you will no doubt feel conflicted by wanting to listen to every minute to catch every small detail while also wishing that almost any other *experienced* TC podcaster had taken on this case.

Engaging and Wonderfully Produced

NHPR has produced a phenomenal podcast about an infamous unsolved New Hampshire murder. Host Jason Moon is respectful and in-depth in his reporting. I highly, highly recommend this podcast to anyone who likes true crime or mysteries.

Hopefully this podcast will bring a little more exposure to the Bear Brook Murders, and maybe lead to the identification of the victims known only as the Allenstown Four.
