Really enjoyed the in-depth report of this crime which had previously remained unsolved for more than 30 years. Also impressed that a spotlight is finally shining on the unreported abuse of multiple children by disgusting teachers and the blatant ignorance of school authorities. My only complaint...Read full review »

... I must say, as someone who works with sexually exploited girls and women, I'm deeply troubled by the fact that Joanna is called "The girlfriend" and she is discribed as someone "culpable" for any of the the things happened. No matter the "age of consent" - he was her teacher, due to this...Read full review »

Great story, but I skipped episode 7-the last and felt like I didn’t miss anything. It seemed like it was the same ideas told different ways by different people.

fantastic investigative journalism.
__supervixen__ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/21/19
This is a fascinating story but it is really really repetitive and about 30% could have been edited out without compromising the story. I listened on a long drive but think I wouldn’t have stuck with it otherwise. The quality of audio is quite poor when calls with third parties are included....Read full review »

I loved the content and that it brought to light such a terrible crime. I also think Joanne is a monster. And Chris is the devil. But this podcast was way too repetitive and way too slow and should’ve been done in 5 one hour long well organized episodes.

I’ve been trying to play this podcast for weeks. It won’t work. I’ve used different podcast apps, same issue on all of them
Jbob88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/14/19
This could have been 5 episodes instead of what felt like 30 but interesting story.
michelleaw91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/19
There was no reason to extend this podcast to this extent. Jumps around a lot. I had to rewind to make sure I was still on track. I could not stand Joanne!! She was NOT an innocent victim. She was evil and bad to the core. She made her own choices. Not a heroin by any stretch.

I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts, and some are boring, some are annoying, some are interesting, and some are riveting, but none compare to this one. It takes the time to research and relay the details necessary for comprehensive understanding, and the narrator is excellent at his job. I was...Read full review »

Amazing!!! I love listening to this podcast - you did such an amazing job!
sassyresss via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/09/19
I’ve been listening to this podcast for over a year. A YEAR! I get two episodes done and I’m exhausted from listening to interviews, recordings, retellings, etc. There is very little in this podcast that goes without being said, but my god does this podcast seem to run on and on. There’s truly no...Read full review »

If anyone in Australia is still reading reviews — PLEASE look at the Russell and Carole Packman case from the mid-1980s in the UK. This could be so relevant to the legal case against Dawson. The similarities to the Dawson case are absolutely uncanny. In 1985 Russell moved his young girlfriend...Read full review »
LydianalaMode via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/19
I stuck with this until episode 13 then gave up listening to all of the later ones. For a very well researched and interesting story it’s way too repetitive. So much so, it actually becomes boring. It’s taken decades for anyone to take this case on properly, Lynette deserved better. One of the...Read full review »

I couldn’t stop listening and thinking about this case! It’s so sad and I hope justice will be served for her murder. Someday, I hope there will be an update and the case will be solved.
judibOOty72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Skip the “bonus conversations” these don’t provide any useful content. The “creepy musak” is over used. The attempts to create suspense are transparent and the male reporters “radio voice” is straight out of the 80s. The content is interesting and a very sad indictment on how this missing...Read full review »
LuckyStar** via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/06/19
Great storyline and well-researched case, but needs to be focused and edited down. Runs on too long and repeats a lot of details and interviews unnecessarily. Looses focus towards the end. Still enjoyed it and props to the team for bringing attention to this case!
Hannah Neo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
This podcast is very thorough, almost redundantly so. The story is interesting; the twin relationship, the “missing” mother, the gross teacher element, the lack of meaningful investigation, the lack of investigation and replacing the wife with the underage girlfriend, but good lord. Several times...Read full review »

This is the best true crime podcast I have ever heard hands down, with Bear Brook in a close second. The journalist in charge of this is a HERO and by the end I was in tears. Now I’m following the case like many all over the world who are waiting for justice for this beautiful lady. This one is...Read full review »
CR Austin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/19
Love true crime, but I couldn’t get past episode 6 or 7. The story is drug out for way too long with not really many new details or leads per episode. Would have enjoyed more as a 3-5 episode podcast.

Not working
Mumma Mel H via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/29/19
I’m absolutely gobsmacked by this podcast! I cannot believe how many signs were there and how many clues were missed. Granted, back in 1982 there was no where near the technology we have today, however, there were still so many missed opportunities for truth to come out!! I’m so sorry for...Read full review »

This podcast is all over the place. What were the other events leading up to Lyn’s disappearance? How did Lyn meet Charlie? Start with Lyn, her life, getting married, the introduction of the “babysitter” living at home. What is known of the day she disappeared? I know nothing about Lyn. Too many...Read full review »

The repetition was awful and obnoxious. I was almost hate listening because I didn’t want to give up on a podcast. The episodes were WAY too long. Honestly... some of the laziest writing I’ve encountered. Too bad. The subject is interesting... I just DONT recommend subjecting yourself to the...Read full review »

This show started off strong but then rehashed so much and had a lot of pointless interviews. Definitely listed to the last few by skimming. :/
littlewhirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/19
The story is good and we, as the audience, want justice for Lyn. Truly and with sincere hearts. It’s the only reason we are sitting through hours of repetitive narrating. The repetition of the same information over and over is incredibly distracting from the story we want to hear most...Read full review »
KaitlynnWils14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/22/19
I swear if the narrator had said “Helena called the night before and Lyn appeared groggy” one more time, I would have gone missing. I see no reason why it had to be 14 episodes long, with the same information being rehashed 5 or 6 times. I mean no disrespect to Lyn or her family, I am just...Read full review »

Way, way, way too long. Eventually had to skip several episode and just go to the last one.
HK cask via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/19
This was an intense, groundbreaking podcast. I’m amazed at what has come about as a result, well done!
LincKym via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/13/19
If it was 4-5 hour long episodes then it would be 5 stars, but it was waaaay too long and repeated the same information over and over.
tropicalstormterri via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/19
Touching and important story that needs to be told. Hoping this pod will bring much needed attention and justice. Heart breaks for the family—- esp Lynne’s 2 daughters. Horrified at the pathetic excuse for police work. But—- the pod is very...very... repetitive and long. After a while it...Read full review »

This podcast series is nothing short of amazing. I have listened to every episode and went back to listen to it again but unfortunately I predict there has been a court request to have these episodes temporarily unavailable while new investigations are occurring. To those of you that haven’t...Read full review »
Nicknackbro via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/12/19
This podcast is mostly hours upon hours of unedited interviews between the host and people connected to the case. There is no storyline and episodes drag on. In addition, things will be repeated multiple times - not in a helpful “don’t forget this” way but seemingly just to add time to the...Read full review »
MN5427 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/19
Almost 5 stars. The story is captivating. Really really good. But, after 8 , 9, 14 hours.... it drags. Condense, cut out some of the minutia, make this a 5 or 6 episode podcast and you have a 5 star masterpiece.
Patrick39047 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/19
HOW? in the world could someone go missing and not a soul go to the police?? This woman was so let down by everyone! Her husband, her family, her friends, just everyone. I know people had their suspicions, but ONLY one person said something and even that wasn’t in the early days. It literally...Read full review »

All those disgusting, so called teachers are PEDOPHILES, I don’t understand why they don’t use that term.
Frenchie 3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
I too find that many episodes repeat information from prior episodes. It could have been shorter by cutting out the repetitive parts of the story. I wonder if they ever considered that she could be buried at the house where Paul Dawson lived at the time right up the block. I can’t stop...Read full review »
#shelby11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/19
The story being told is heartbreaking and tragic, but the way Headly tells it is so beautiful and respectful towards Lynn. I can’t wait for an update after the trial in August 2019.

Este podcast se concentra en la historia de un crimen que no solo no se solucionó— si no que no siquiera se trató como cuál. PERO, aunque la historia en sí es bastante interesante, después de los primeros episodios, el narrador comienza a repetirse a sí mismo. Y los últimos episodios no contienen...Read full review »
Samaakhe via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 06/25/19
I really really want to like the podcast, but I’m 6 episodes in and every episode I find myself saying “Wait. Did I already listen to this episode?” There is so much redundancy. Also I feel like the chronology of the story meanders. I’m never quite sure where we are in the story’s timeline.
SJPeaches via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/19
Shocking story. Justice should be served up to those responsible
themindkeys via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/21/19
Wow
Chris is obviously a disgusting narcissist. Next to him, I just can not believe Marilyn, Paul’s wife, and her comments! Jeeeez! Way to throw out your sister-in-law like trash...by housing a teen mistress, naively batting your lashes at paul and Chris, and putting blame on LYNN of all people! “I...Read full review »

I could not stop listening to this podcast. I they would find Lynn or her body so that her daughters and family can have some peace.

Am I the only one that can’t play any episodes? It was just getting really exciting too 😩

So if I had listened to this before I could have herd all of the podcast, but because I was a bit slow I and many others like me have missed out, I can’t understand why some people were allowed to listen to it and we the slow are not allowed too. So if I could someone that had a copy of what was...Read full review »
