“As well as The Shattered Window, before choosing to write a review. My daily drive to work takes a half hour; I listened to about an episode per day (had one the way there and half on the way home), waiting for the moment when the podcast became repetitive or bored with itself, as most unlimited ones do.
It never happened. This podcast is well researched, but more than anything, the episodes are well chosen, the victims more real than their killers, and the social / racial divides of the underreported are laid bare.
This isn’t the podcast to listen to if you want to know more about Gabby Petito. Emily doesn’t talk much about cases that are already well-explored. She most often talks about the underprivileged, those whose cases are mostly forgotten due to lack of exposure or funding.
Gillian Flynn said that, as true crime readers, we are choosing to be consumers of someone else’s tragedy and thus have the obligation to responsibly choose those who are dogged, insightful, and humane.
That goes for listeners as well, and if that is the kind of podcast you’re looking for, then this is the one for you. I’ve greatly enjoyed listening to it grow, and while I’m sad that I’ve reached the end of my binge, I look forward to new episodes.”
