A few changes and it would be great!

I am really in to the idea of this podcast, however it makes it really hard to follow when they play entire interviews with poor sound quality, one episode they used a voice actor and that was a great idea. This last episode (the witness) they disguised the persons voice and it was already a phone recording. I had no idea what was being said until the recap at the end of the podcast. If they could use voice actors for all the bad audio, I feel that would really help the podcast be great and listenable.

I've never listened to a podcast that had more repetitive episodes!!

This podcast covers a serious and compelling subject, but the podcaster is AWFUL. Many of the episodes are repetitive - why is she trying to draw this podcast out? Nothing is edited therefore the podcast is stuffed with long drawn out interviews of witnesses and tangents that add no value to the story. It seems by episode 3 she knows a lot of clarifying info but doesn't provide it. We are now at episode 7 and she hasn't provided any of this information. Would someone who knows how to edit and won't repeat content from episode to episode or use filler tangents take this over! I'm going to wait til she finishes up (year 2020?) and fast forward through it to the end. I suggest you do the same.

Not Up To Par

From the annoying music to the dramatic readings by the main hosts, it is really hard to like this podcast. She also lets interviews go on forever. Now, I like unedited interviews, but she needs to edit herself out and let the subjects be heard.

She tries so hard to make that photograph of the girl and the little boy bound and gagged be Tara Calico. It's not her and IMO, (like the experts'), it's a staged photo.

IMO, she's trying to hard to be Serial and Making A Murderer (she is a budding filmmaker - surprise!). She says this is a labor of love, but I don't buy it...she's begging for money right out of the gate. Something tells me she's trying to raise money for her film.

She really doesn't seem to have her heart in her subject, but rather being a top 10 podcast on iTunes and raising money. I'd move along and not bother with this one. Besides the annoying music and dramatics, there's no "there" there to this story. She has no special angle or hook to reel you in.

There are plenty of other podcasts out there, so trust me, you can skip this one.
