Way too many adds, not enough information

I think the producers of this podcast should be ashamed of themselves. They totally milked the story for all it’s worth. They came up with short episodes with a little content and a lot of ads — It’s essentially the spoken word version of the Glamour article with personal anecdotes from the...Read full review »

Had heard about this tragedy when it happened but nothing since ... series was tasteful and informative

I really enjoyed the story and was shocked to have never heard it before. I just felt like the researchers were missing a lot of actual details.

Amongst limited story line about the event are many a key word such as “privilege” and phrases “as a woman” I’m surprised I haven’t heard trump mentioned yet
papabev via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/19
The ending left a bad taste in my mouth. Why did you make it a point give this woman credit? Why the title? Were there good times? I see non evidence that there were good times, only photo ops. The story is framed as if these women really wanted to help but became overwhelmed and if Jen had...Read full review »

If you read a handful of news articles about this story - don’t bother listening to this podcast. No additional information is presented. I read a few articles when this occurred and I don’t feel after listening to the entire podcast that I learned any new info. Disappointing. And to be clear...Read full review »

Just google this tragedy and read an article same info
Loglinz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/19
Like others have stated. I was following the narration until that last episode. “At best they were Anti-hero’s.” What tf is that about? At best they abused and murdered 6 children. Way to go. I hope that the families of those kids don’t ever come across this.

This heartbreaking story of the Hart’s is well laid out and makes you pay attention to all of the details from beginning to end. Thank you for giving this untold story the attention it deserved. Well done!
travelbug72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/19
Almost the same episode over and over and over with a little more information too much advertising
LL-p via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/19
The podcast episode lengths made it easy to “binge-listen”, though I expected more from the ending. Also, when I went to the link provided in the podcast I was expecting more of a collage of images that were discussed, organized by each episode. It was just the transcript from the podcast and one...Read full review »

This podcast I found extremely addicting. It breaks your heart over and over again but one I found unable to stop listening to. It was clearly researched thoroughly. I do wish that they were a bit longer and that some details could have been gone into more thoroughly. There is multiple interviews...Read full review »

Good story telling but the amount of and placement of ads kinda take you out of the immersion.
Guest-29 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/19
Completely captivating, great investigative journalism. Couldn’t stop listening. Gave the story the proper respect and dignity.
MickeyKid201846581947291 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/19
I though this was great. Heartbreaking and sickening at the same time. Seems like we need a change in this country in background checks for who can adopt and better communication across state lines. May those poor children Rest In Peace.
TVD316 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
Really disappointed because I thought it was going to add information to the story but it just left me frustrated. I kind of understand why, because till now there is no final ruling by the court either and so you won’t really get a final resolution . I liked the hosts though! They were unbiased...Read full review »
Merging day and night via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
This podcast is moving. I would love to hear more from the families of the children. Being from Minnesota and familiar with Alexandria, MN I had heard about the “accident” that took all of these lives but never heard more after the investigation shows it was intentional. This is eye opening to...Read full review »

Can’t fault the podcast except that it doesn’t and can’t offer much on why this happened. More will be revealed by the coronial inquiry starting in April - the podcast should have been held and episodes added after the Coroner has reported the findings,
Robyn Gilbertson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/19/19
I was looking forward to this as it was such a strange case-seemed like a good story for this type of podcast where background and history is important to understand what happened. The first few episodes were good and and seemed to be making a point about a perfect life on contrary to what was...Read full review »
Cool jey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
Pretty entertaining, happily devoid nof a completely racially slanted perspective (which is hard to come by these days) minus episode 6 in which we hear from someone obsessed with race and hatred of white people adopting children of other races. I roll my eyes at how hypocritical this particular...Read full review »
Jessi_J_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
This is an incredibly irresponsible telling of this important story. The hosts of this podcast gloss over the role of race and white supremacy in these events, constantly looking for excuses for the Hart women. They assert that the women loved their children and became overwhelmed by parenthood...Read full review »

Enjoying (as much as one can) this podcast. Well-reported. The main complaint is the ads/sponsors are wildly inappropriate for the content. Ron Burgundy podcast ads about defecation doesn’t really mix well with the murder of children.
IrishBookOwl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/19
This story needed to be told..... However making the story largely based on Jens Facebook posts is disingenuous and presumptive! This needs to be researched deeper the children’s story needs to be told - Jen was a sick attention seeker..... There is no doubt in my mind that she staged the...Read full review »
Burgerluvr088 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/19
I’m not terribly surprised that some place like Glamour has done this, but I’m very let down that How Stuff Works’ name is on this piece of dreck that capitalized on the pain and suffering of 6 Black children and their birth families. This podcast adds very little that folks can’t find with...Read full review »

I want to hear the end of the story!
TinaYFL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/19
Includes way too much extraneous information, entire episodes don’t move the plot forward, very boring and a waste of time.
Susie1q19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/19
First couple episodes were interesting, but not much happens after episode 3 or so. Very little content in general, and as others have mentioned, too many ads! Definitely wasn’t my favorite of the “true crime” genre podcasts.
Ryanmenconi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/19
How did the two podcasters become part of the story? Is this journalism or prurient entertainment. Boo!
judzee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/19
I was super into this show while it was coming out. But each week I’d be disappointed with what little information I was given. I was absolutely left “wanting more” and in the end nothing was really wrapped up. Overall okay. Great story, little real info. Google the story and you’ll actually find...Read full review »
MissRyah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/19
I see a lot of negative reviews about short episodes with ads, if you have a problem with that then you should probably not use podcasts since that’s how they make fun to continue to produce episodes..unless you plan on fully funding them... The story is told very well, they researched as much...Read full review »

I feel awful for the children in this story. It’s a compelling tale, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the podcast as a whole.
Sfga23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/19
I like this podcast. But, it is sometimes confusing how they go back and forth in time. Sometimes talking post-death - sometimes talking pre-death. They could have done the listener a favor by doing a straight timeline after laying out the conclusion - which everyone knows anyway.
Schultz132 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
Just two Women ashamed to be white reporting on two more women who also were ashamed to be white.
averageJoanne via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
Love the podcast! Cannot stand the Ron Burgundy ads. So annoying. Very unfortunate you had to be stuck with that crap, amongst a very good show.
jmjh423456789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/19
Being outside the US, I hadn’t heard of this story. I invested the time but felt like nobody actually figured out why a woman, or two women, would abuse and allegedly murder their adopted children. Felt very ‘top line’ in its reportage and analysis. Cheered for the neighbour’s Dad who rang to...Read full review »

Really drawn out with little to no new info in it. Literally could have been like 3 episodes
COeep via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
Very good podcast!
Natica87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
This story has been completely overlooked by most true crime sources. This was a GREAT in-depth look into the family and the tragedy.
Takeoutblonde via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
Are there any more episodes coming ?
sls1126 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
This was a short but succinct podcast. It was informative and provided a background as best as possible. I was totally unaware of this case, so thank you for a job well done.
Fruity3377 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
Interesting,sad story of abuse and self serving whackos, however episodes are way too short especially with two commercial breaks. First two episodes were interesting and then the ball is dropped. Save yourself the time and pass on this. Episodes just feel like a random 30 minute snip-it without...Read full review »
Philly Bauer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
The story is interesting, but the research is spotty, the time line is all over the place, and the narrators are too giddy for the topic, there’s not much information, and the “experts” present one-dimensional, ultra leftist theories (i.e. transracial families need to live in areas where the...Read full review »

Too many long ads that are so disruptive
Andi'sBoys via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/13/19
The episodes are too short. After introductions, sponsorship ads in the beginning, middle, and end, there’s only like 15 good minutes of actual content. It’s a very interesting story and I am intrigued, but I get annoyed at the amount of ads and lack of real content. Edited after I got the FINAL...Read full review »

Pretty late in the podcast.
aeiou77777 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/19
This has all the trappings of a gripping true-crime podcast: an interesting situation, an unsolved mystery, people whose character pathology and bad behavior are on public display. Unfortunately, it's ultimately just not that engaging. I think the problem is that the podcaster's investigation...Read full review »
NillaGoon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/19
A podcast with extremely short episodes, a lot of advertisements, and conjecture. I had the highest hopes for this podcast, and was so disappointed. I feel like the narrators gave these women a lot of grace because they were two white lesbians. Had anyone else done what these ladies did to these...Read full review »
swordsn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/19
UGH! I love the concept of this podcast so much, and the hosts seem genuinely interesting, BUT the episodes are short and unsatisfying. They muse for ten minutes about how could this happen, an ad plays, and it’s over. More research and more info PLEASE!
ipodkool via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/19
Two women discover a shocking crime and decide to gather up what little information they can regarding the story. Very slow-paced and I have yet to understand how injecting their own motherhood into the podcast was necessary. Especially when one of the journalists entertains the idea of a...Read full review »
