Most excellent show. Great narration & voice. Intriguing case. Sadly, Women/Girls are still chattle in some cultures of the world. Famous Texas case where a father kills his two daughters rather than have them become any more American iced. The sisters were born American!! Crazy! Anyway. Sincerely, a devoted listener.

This is an interesting case and I like the podcast. But I also wish they would have dropped it all at once since each episode is less than a half hour long.

Waiting a week for a small piece isn't cool. I wish they had just waited and put a bunch out at once. Although I do enjoy the podcast.

I waited a week for an episode that could have been summed up in 1 min? No thanks

I agree with Josh that the word "closure" is misused in reference to the families of murder victims. What exactly gets closed? Every time I hear that word used in this context it really irritates and annoys me.

I really enjoyed the first episode. This one not as much. I hope episode 3 I'd a bit more interesting.
