Could have been so much more

The story is very interesting, the podcast is NOT. It’s storytelling not an investigation (which was what I was looking for). The hosts are merely telling things that has already been reported and told. It is not until the epilogue that they drop tidbits of information not included in the story that really should be followed up on and investigated. They do a disservice to the subject matter by not truly doing any real investigating. They repeatedly call what they are doing “investigating” but it is not. It’s storytelling only and mediocre at best.

After the new evidence comes to light, we look back at the investigation into the murder of Donna Brown. And share some information we didn’t quite know what to do with. Information about some key players who we know shaped the outcome of this case. Players we still have questions about. One is an elusive police detective with a bad reputation. The other is a witness we’ve talked about before. Or maybe she’s a suspect. It’s hard to tell.
