Up and Vanished is an investigative true crime podcast hosted by Atlanta filmmaker Payne Lindsey. In Season 1, Payne tackles his first cold case story, the unsolved disappearance of Georgia high school teacher and former pageant queen, Tara Grinstead. The 11-year-old case remains the largest case file in Georgia history and is still unfolding. Season 2 focuses on the disappearance of young mother Kristal Reisinger from a remote mountain town in Colorado. Up and Vanished aims to tell compelling, true stories and give these cases the exposure they deserve.

Opportunist trash

First, I should say that I never leave negative reviews. Even if I hate the product or company, it just never seems worth it to me to go to the trouble to call people out on jobs poorly done.

In this case, I'm making an exception.

After listening to the first episode, I was shocked at how openly this podcaster embraced being a complete opportunist. Call it youthful arrogance or immaturity, but if he had any interest at all in the humanity or dignity of the victim, he didn't indicate it beyond a half-sentence about Tara being well-liked in the community. In fact, his interest, in his words, was in finding a "cool story" to promote himself to Serial-like fame. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and listen to the second episode to see if he would correct himself, but even that was full of self-righteous narration, the same sleazy production antics (getting his ominous-voiced buddy to narrate "mysterious' sections), and shameless basking in the response and hype from listeners. This podcast is so in love with itself it's unreal. This certainly isn't journalism, and I wouldn't even call it storytelling. It's trash.

So bad.

Amateur hour. Melodramatic, immature, and dumb. Interesting case with an unlikable host and terrible investigation. Gives the vibe of trying too hard. It's a wannabe Serial executed horribly and exploits a sad unsolved case for the hosts own self gain (which he states himself in the first episode).

Tried to like it.

Opportunistic garbage and repetitive. This guy just wants to be famous.
