Too long between episodes

It’s a fascinating case that deserves a deep dive. I just don’t understand the thinking behind dropping an episode every 2 weeks. Particularly when the episodes are as short as they are. Impossible to gain momentum that way. Would have made more sense to just record the entire season and drop it all at once. More likely to get binge listeners that way. I like the narrator, and the material is good, but the episodes are too short and too spaced.

Great host and research, but with some flaws.

The host has a voice made for radio. She presents material in an objective, factual way and is definitely respectful of the families with this difficult topic.
My only criticism are technical things, mainly the editing and sound. With the editing, the narrative and timeline jumps around a lot. Even with careful listening, you’ll find yourself having to rewind to sort out names and dates in your head.
The sound design is very poor. I’m all for minimal sound design if it’s done well, but the placement and quality (mostly audio compression) has many shortcomings. Attention to these areas could really make this show the full package!

Keep Them Coming

Anything podcast this host puts out goes to the top of my list. Always well-researches with compassion and respect. She makes me feel so deeply for the cases she covers. Very well-spoken and even-toned, her way of speaking allows me to focus on completely on the story. She is an immensely talented podcaster. Please give me more to listen to!!!
