I love this podcast, but the commercials are *ridiculous*. I’m already listening, do you really need to pitch me for 5 whole minutes, out of a 30 - 40 minute podcast, to listen to this same GD podcast???? I’m about to unsubscribe because I can’t take any more commercials time > podcast time.

Online obsession, "citizen detectives" with zero investigative or journalistic qualifications except having listened to podcasts and deciding who is guilty and then seeking out and contacting family members is cruel, vicious and stupid acts of attention seekers. It revictimizes parents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and other family and friends of those who are missing or murdered. It is emotional assault on families living every day crushed under grief and loss and it is abusive. If it is not a true tip (NOT THEORY) made to law enforcement, I wish there was a way to have those people prosecuted for contacting family with "I think" or "I believe" half-baked theories after listening to podcasts or after following a missing person's site or page. If a person cannot restrain themselves from giving their theories on an unsolved case, then CONTACT LAW ENFORCEMENT NOT HURTING FAMILIES.

I really don't think "favored the sketch" means the same as "resembled the sketch" which is what you're trying to say....

Ten minutes of the same statement/story being repeated over and over and over and over. Too much!

Why do the people who do podcasts have to record the intro music so much louder than the rest of the episodes?
