Fake reviewsI feel like so many of the good reviews of this podcast are fake. Seriously..Score: 1/5

Great story but a lot to followI enjoyed the story of Season 1, but it is definitely a podcast suited for those who were following it live back when it was airing. It was a great story and it was amazing to hear how the live story kept progressing while the podcast episodes were coming out. But as someone who joined late in the game after all the episodes aired, I found it so hard to follow all the different episodes, especially all the ones that came after the first big break in the case (like halfway through), that I didn’t end up finishing the series. This might be overreaching but if there are still new listeners joining, I think it would be great to see a few condensed final episodes (after the big break) to summarize what happened!.Score: 4/5

Can’t stand the fast talking from hostWhy? It’s near impossible to hear or absorb the story because the speed has been sped up so much..Score: 1/5

Best one out thereSuch a good podcast, whilst the situation it’s addressing is heart breaking it is produced in such a graceful and respectful manner. Easy to listen through and new developments with incredible detail each episode ☺️.Score: 5/5

Please learn what ‘ironic’ meansGood at the start but goes downhill towards end of S1 when the host gets extremely self-congratulatory and arrogant about what information he thinks the GBI should release. Also someone please teach him that ‘ironic’ doesn’t just mean ‘strange’!.Score: 3/5

SadAlways wondered how long someone could milk a tragedy like this. So sick of these types of podcasts trying to pretend they’re something more than morbid entertainment..Score: 1/5

Don’t waste your time.Do yourself a favour and don’t bother listening. I do admit I enjoyed the first few podcasts but after the first arrest it all goes down hill. I couldn’t tolerate hearing Payne’s voice anymore or listening to the repetitive episodes of the same discussion just with different guests!! Waste of time!! My experience had completely turned me off from finding out the end result. Unsubscribed. Do not recommend..Score: 1/5

Obsessed!!!I only recently came across this podcast and have been utterly obsessed with it! Both seasons got me hook, line and sinker. Glad I wasn’t listening to it back when it was released as I wouldn’t have been able to binge like I have been. By far one of the best and most riveting podcasts I’ve listened to. Thank you!!!.Score: 5/5

I love this showAnd I like Payne He cares about these people and you can tell that. Lots of things to like and appreciate about this podcast, especially if you have an interest in unsolved crimes and the mystery surrounding them..Score: 5/5

Horrible scratchy soundsHad to stop at episode 6, couldn’t go on listening to the painful scratchy audio of the interviewee on the phone, which is most of episode 5 and 6. And when the surnames are bleeped out with a horrible chiming noise my ears were literally hurting. Too much wincing. Sorry guys..Score: 2/5

Great WorkSeason One is probably my second favourite Podcast of all time, and Season Two not far behind. The Tara Grinstead case and the story of Ocilla Georgia around it is captivating.Score: 5/5

A much deserved voice for the victims.I loved this podcast because it dives that bit deeper into the case and is so written. I listen while I’m at work so will often get distracted and miss a sentence or two but I’ve found this podcast very easy to follow and get back on track with. I was shocked when I saw some low rating reviews, but after reading them and listening to the podcast, I think we all know who wrote them..Score: 5/5

Australian ListenerI have absolutely loved this podcast and listen from Sydney, Australia. Each episode left me wanting more and more. I think I listened to the entire podcast in 2 weeks. It is such a sad story but told extremely well through the podcast. Thank goodness for the podcast because there is no way the case would have been solved without it..Score: 5/5

Annoying hostThis guy needs some annunciation lessons. The way he speaks so fast and rolls every word into the next is so annoying. What’s worse is his punctuation, he has no idea where to insert pauses in a sentence! His delivery is similar to a newscaster which would be fine if this was a news series but it’s supposed to be investigative journalism. The content is interesting, but the delivery is insufferable..Score: 1/5

Too much advertisingAn enjoyable podcast. Season 2, I really noticed the advertising. Its too much. Avoid episode 6 as the audio is terrible. I hope nothing interesting happened as I had to skip this episode. I hope Season 3 has less advertising..Score: 3/5

A 5 Star experienceSeason 2 is maybe even better than season 1.!? The sound design (and obviously the story) are absolutely amazing! Terrifying, in the best way possible..Score: 5/5

Lots of adsOk podcast but the constant interrupting from ads is annoying. Season 2 could have been done over 2-3 episodes, the repetition of information has meant the podcast is longer than it needs to be..Score: 3/5

My ThoughtsSeason 1 has been great! I’m up to the Beau episode... the second last one... who is the annoying girl Beau was speaking to online, WHY on earth would he divulge the details of what happened to someone like her? Obviously a fan girl of the podcast, probing for all the details (but won’t talk about her private life!) Unbelievable... this whole story is unbelievable. What a weird town. Not much respect for the dead, the way ppl have spoken throughout. RIP beautiful girl....Score: 4/5

Brilliant!Thanks for introducing me to loving podcasts!.Score: 5/5

Worst background trackImpossible to focus on the narrative as there is a loud music and percussion track banging away at the same time he is talking. The presenter is so full of himself. Takes credit for a lot of things unattributable to him. And over-hypes and dramatises everything like only an American can. Dragged out over way too many episodes. A lot of useless repetition and generalised discussions not specific to the case..Score: 1/5

RivetingI can’t turn it off. Amazing work Payne..Score: 5/5

Will keep this Chanel on my radarI must admit I listened to the second season first and it left me wanting more but then I listened to the first season, however interesting the content is, it has far too many ads and super repetitive but from what I can tell Payne and his crew have learnt from the negative feed back and are growing from the experience of the good, bad and the ugly! All in all, keep up the good work. Can’t wait to hear more.Score: 3/5

Payne needs to give up on podcastsPayne Lindsey likes to think of himself as an investigative journalist - his first podcast Up and Vanished was pretty awful (lengthy, repetitive, episodes for the sake of episodes) but the event itself was interesting so I put it down to being a first podcast. However I’ve just listened to his second podcast (from How Stuff Works) after deciding to give him a second chance. Big mistake! Payne continues to produce podcasts that are lengthy, lack any main points, no consistent timeline, and jumping around between speakers with no introductions (like we’re meant to remember them from episode 1!). *sigh* it seems that anyone thinks they can make a podcast these days based on an unsolved crime - doesn’t mean the podcast is good. Please don’t bother with listening, it’s a waste of time. There are plenty of better executed true crime podcasts to give your time to..Score: 1/5

Runs off the railsThe presenter stomps around the story in metaphoric steelcapped boots, seemingly full of his own self-importance and lacking any professional grace/finesse. This is a good story told badly...there are better investigative podcasts with talented presenters...see Someone Knows Something or Teacher’s Pet or the work of Jon Ronson or Louis Theroux..Score: 2/5

Interesting, then disappointingReally interested in the investigation to begin with, was hanging off every word. After the arrest, the podcast took a huge turn. I guess this was to be anticipated, with the huge influx of new information and suspects to the case. But extremely disliked how everyone straight away assumed Ryan was guilty.. Where before they had been discovering facts, and detective work, turned into speculation, unwarranted accusations, and rumours, with no base in fact..Score: 3/5

Fame has gone to his headI really liked this podcast until I heard the way Payne spoke to the witness in episode 19. This was arrogant and unnecessary. The questions could have been asked in a more respectful manner. He came across as a real jerk..Score: 1/5

About TaraAn excellent podcast. Omgosh I’ve been hooked to this for the last 2 weeks. Every single episode, update & Q&A. Your journey has been fantastic. I can’t wait to get to the end. Thank you. Debbie ~ from Australia..Score: 5/5

Great story but too much wasted timeThe podcast itself is really interesting when it’s moving along, but maybe 1/3 of the episodes are wasted time, either with poorly timed ads, preceded and followed by the same lengthy music, or almost word for word repetition of the main points from the previous podcast as an update, again followed by said lengthy music. I couldn’t binge listen in the car because I had to skip forward so often it started to be a distraction..Score: 3/5

Too much laughing, too many adsGreat content, however there is wayyyy too much laughing involved in such serious cases. Also how many ads are there?! I have never listened to a podcast with so many ads!.Score: 3/5

Second Season almost unlisten-ableI loved the first season and highly recommend it as one of the most engaging true crime podcasts I have listened to. Unfortunately I am really struggling with the second season. The production is not as clear and I am missing Payne’s “story telling” and his narration which feels really minimal in S2. There is also something strange with the audio on the interviews and witness accounts. I am unsure if it is a voice recognition distortion to protect identity or just bad audio quality. Either way it’s preventing me from hearing a lot of the content and with so much concentration required, making me check out. I really wanted it to be as good if not better than Season 1 but I don’t think I can finish it. Given up at Episide 6. Sorry Payne!.Score: 3/5

EnjoyableI’ve really liked this podcast, it’s thorough and I’m amazed at all the new bits and pieces have come to light even after so long. Maybe being interested but not police has enabled people to talk more freely or maybe time has loosened people’s fear. I think the police need a bollocking for not being very transparent or interested. Poor conduct. The only thing I wanted more detail on was that neighbour - he had a key? I live remote and no one has my key. Great work team👍🏼.Score: 4/5

Long seriesI thought the story was interesting (RIP Tara) and the presentation good, (well done Payne) although a bit long and drawn out (so many episodes) What let it down was the labelling of the episodes - they didn’t seem to fall in order and it was hard to keep track of them all as instead of being labelled 1-100 etc (straight forward way to label things that should be played in numerical order for flow and ease of use) they had episode X followed by bonus episode no number but a date, so I couldn’t find the natural order of the episodes... they great thing is that the podcast may have promoted the tip off that got the case solved. I hope you can label any second series more professionally..Score: 3/5

Introducing "To Live and Die in LA" Season 2

What would you do if someone went missing in your neighborhood? When Elaine Park, a twenty-year-old college student and aspiring artist, disappeared in host Neil Strauss’s neighborhood of Malibu, California, he decided to use his experience as a reporter to help. Forming an unlikely investigative team with his wife and concerned neighbors, they used their resources to raise a reward, spread awareness, and investigate the parties that many believe were responsible.

Introducing Algorithm

When Afrikka Hardy was strangled in 2014 it seemed completely random, but it wasn’t. It was part of a pattern. Four years earlier, a reporter Thomas Hargrove had created an algorithm to detect serial killers, and that algorithm flagged Gary, Indiana as the site of an unusual number of cold case murders by strangulation. Hargrove reached out to warn local police that they might have an active serial killer operating in the area, but he was ignored. That is, until Afrikka Hardy was murdered, and those cold cases that he had identified suddenly didn’t look so cold. Algorithm follows the investigation into Afrikka’s murder, tracking her killer, exposing the warnings that police ignored, and uncovering more than anyone expected -- that a serial killer who was strangling women in Gary, Indiana could have been stopped. And that Afrikka Hardy should be alive today. This podcast will explore how technology can be used to identify and track serial killers, and how an algorithm can influence the way homicides are investigated all across the country. From iHeart Radio and Tenderfoot TV, this is Algorithm. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
