The evocation of place, the times, society & characters are presented so intensely & beautifully, that the murders themselves in each series are all the more electric. All these series, from Up & Vanished to Monster remind me of great literary novels, with such breadth, so many voices, such detail, the places where the murders happened become Technicolor communities alive in my mind, though I live in the UK & am a stranger to these places, people’s and cultures. So much of these podcasts reminds me of the great directors, Bertolucci or Truffaut, the novels of Thackeray, Turgenev or Dickens, broad landscapes under wider skies peopled with communities that breathe, love and hate. These podcasts are masterly in every detail, from the narration and narrative’s construction, to the interviews, music and editing, these are gripping tableau made with obvious passion, empathy & humanity, stories of our times, more compelling than fiction, of lives lost and lived. Thank you Payne and all involved, your talents are outstanding.
