Have loved this podcast. But what was the point of Conversation 17? Please save the back and forth for off-air discussion and post journalistic findings when you have them.

First rule of effective storytelling is that a story has a beginning, middle, and end. This story has become endless. I wish they would just end the podcast and update us when/if the case is solved.

This podcast could have been great. It comes across like a trashy American Reality TV show, just the way they go over and over the same point, as if the listeners are so silly they didn't get it the first time. It just became loborious to listen to after a while. The interviewing journalist has zero tact and his personality matched. Sadly not much heart appears to have gone into the delivery at all. 7 network sells the story like the nightly News flash. Sally is the only saving grace. Obviously, this is her story, it's her life. My heart goes out to you Sally, I truly hope you find some peace and closure through this experience. I only wish she had gone to the Australian, who have delivered some fantastic Australian truecrime podcasts.

Awful. Just send him the address if you honestly want answers as opposed to trying to get a sensational story on air. I would have put the phone down on her a long time before.

I'm finding Matthew Leveson's father hard to understand. He's speaking very quickly and I'm missing every few words. it would be good if you could have just reiterated what he said. Apart from that it's an interesting podcast.

Sally you are amazing I think about you and your Mum often. I hope this helps you find the answer. I find the podcast interesting, its hard to say I enjoy it knowing what you're going through. I know it's not scripted but Alison the "ums" are almost every third word .... just try to think before you speak🤦‍♀️ Sally and Brian just the odd "um" here and there totally acceptable.

I find the family oddly complacent and too accepting of some very odd circumstances. I am calling bs on the idea that she has willingly disappeared for this long. I am sure she meant to "disappear" for awhile just like she planned but not through all these other important events. Missing her father's funeral, her son's funeral, her daughter's wedding, her grandchildren being born? I call bs. The disappearing money? "Being angry" with her daughter for not depositing money in her account? Stolen identity. Or Scientology. Or something. I prefer to believe she is alive.

Was the bank account actually closed when it was drained? Or just reduced to a small balance?
