Compelling story/bad production

All the bad things about TV brought to a podcast. The storyline was broken so much so that I had to check each episode to make sure I was going in the correct order. There was endless repetition especially in early episodes. Like in bad television, producers would bookend commercials with verbatim repetition almost As if the had to stretch the content out by several hours to fill advertising, so much so that the flow of the story would stall for 5-10 minutes. You will sound bites 3-4 times that do nothing to advance or enhance the story. The narrators themselves say the same thing over and over again as if trying to teach a toddler how to say the alphabet.

The only saving grace was that the story was so compelling for me as a former wrestler. Even though they hyperbolized Kevin's role in finding or bringing Alex to justice the story itself was very engaging.

I really hope they adjust to the podcasting community and ditch TV antics in future podcasts.

Wasted potential

The Story behind this podcast is so fascinating. The actual podcast itself is terrible.

The narrators record an unscripted conversation between them like a talk show, which is a terrible choice for a documentary series. The narrators are bumbling, unsure and correct themselves and each other often. The podcast would have been SO MUCH better served by having a scripted narrator.

The story has no pacing. It jumps backward, forwards, and back in time again for no reason at all.

Episode 1 doesn't really introduce the story. Instead of talking about how Alex got involved with drugs, they skip right from high school to the time he is a kingpin in the late 80s in the middle of the episode .

Again, I cannot stress how fascinating and one-of-a-kind the story is. It has all the trappings or a story that straight out of Hollywood. But just because the podcast is focused on a great story, doesn't mean it is a good podcast. Based on the first couple episodes, I would much rather read an article or book on this story instead of finishing this podcast.

Great!!

The podcasters are a great story tellers with a very unique story. Can't wait for the next episode!! Thank you!!
