Laura Richards's approach to telling the story of a crime resonated deeply with me. Her argument, that approaching a criminal investigation with preconceived bias against the victims leads to dangerously inadequate conclusions, seems both clear and just.
However, I am not very interested in the grisly details of true crime, and I am especially repelled by the crime that is the only topic of the first five episodes. If I were already familiar with the crime and this podcast was giving me a fresh and totally different perspective on it, I might be interested. But brutal serial killers who fetishize preying on women is just not how I want to spend my free time.
