  • Worth a listen

    Really well done show. The tapes, other people’s impressions of the accused, well structured & the narrator has a good voice. Also I’d never heard of this crime so it was a journey - feeling sorry to being a bit sick of her.

  • Releases are not good!

    This is a binge-worthy story! Releasing one 30 minute episode per week does work for the listener. I refuse to subscribe to one more thing. It’s too bad because it’s an interesting family drama.

  • Good story, bad podcast

    This could have been 2 episodes. Breaking it up is frustrating and it appears other feel the same. Early and ad free is a joke.

  • Terrible host and vile cops

    This podcast confirms what everyone already knows about cops. Detective Needles is a vile human. He and his pals lie, coerce, and verbally abuse Meghan. She was never offered an attorney. The host of this podcast never points out that confessions - especially under these circumstances - are often false. Shameful. I hope karma puts their loved ones in similar situations one day. They deserve the worst.
