Criticisms from Listeners*:

  • Limited Perspectives: In some instances, the podcast’s focus on a single person’s account of events might leave out crucial perspectives from others involved in the story, leading to a potential lack of balance or depth.
  • Audio Quality: While the podcast has improved over time, in earlier episodes, there were occasional complaints about inconsistent audio quality, including background noise or issues with the volume levels.
  • Lack of Follow-up: After the conclusion of some seasons, listeners have desired more follow-up information or updates on the individuals involved in the stories to understand how their lives progressed beyond the events presented in the podcast.
