This is a hilarious satire, brought to you by the Onion. The people that left negative reviews didn't seem to realize this was satirical. I would describe it as deadpan humor, or as a mockumentary because it tries to mimic news segments you would hear on NPR.

OMG! At first I was befuddled by the unsympathetic comments about the murder, because I was expecting a crime show. Then, when I realized it was meant to be perceived as a witticism, I could not stop laughing.

Even though this is fake, it's still distasteful to me. I normally enjoy satire, but this was just a little too callous. I know murder mysteries intregue and entertain us, but making fun of murder and victims to this extent feels too derisive to all the real murders and victims out there.

I got through 2 1/2 episodes... it's terrible! podcasting is not for you dude! it's like a combination of S-town and Serial but with hired actors pretending and very badly at that. Plus no one would tell a crying mother her tears are coming through the mic good or hand her a paper advertisement to read.

If it's a real case then this podcast is horrible! you cant make murder funny and being an asshole to the victims friends and family is unappealing. And if it is fake why would I even waste time listening to it?
