  • Well made

    I think the podcast is well made as in it tells the tragic story very vividly. I’m slightly confused by the fact if Bertie is possibly the perpetrator why isn’t it ever mentioned that his sketch could be a cover for his (possible) crime.

  • Audio quality

    Story is very engaging and I had no problems hearing Frank, but the audio quality of the family interviews is noticeably poor. I don’t know if it’s a matter of the device used to record the family interviews being poor quality or if the interviewees speak a bit too quietly, but at a couple of points during the podcast, I considered switching to another story because the interviews were difficult to hear and they’re integral parts of the story.
