Description

When April Balascio was 40 years old, something she’d feared for decades was finally proven true. Her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, really was a murderer. The Clearing is about what came after April called a detective in 2009 to tell him about her suspicions — a call that led to her father’s arrest and eventual conviction on multiple murders — and tracks the emotional journey as she and host Josh Dean dig back into her childhood, unravel the truth of her father’s life, and overturn a viral online narrative that had turned Edward Wayne Edwards into a kind of serial killer caricature.
Produced by Pineapple Street Media in association with Gimlet.

Interesting so far but this is another podcast where the host talks way too fast. I wish they would learn to slow down and reflect on what they're saying a little bit.

denis He seems to a bit as you go forward. But yeah, this drives me nuts. A couple of podcasts I had to quit listening to because they just talked too fast to keep up with.

I just listened to the first two episodes and I'm hooked! I haven't found a podcast that I've found this interesting in ages, I hope the wait won't be too long between episodes. I need more!
