I just listened to the entire podcast in four days, which is pretty fast for me, and I am blown away. Alex Reagan and Dr. Strand have a Mulder and Scully vibe that works so well, and I love Alex'c friendship with her fellow producer Nic. One of the highlights of season 2 was how Alex's life was directly affected by the stressful investigations and how it changed her relationships as she buckled under the stress.
I never thought I'd have cause to shout out the ads in a podcast, but here I am. It took a while for them to get playful and fun, but by season 3, they're really creative and funny. I head-canon that Alex and Nic write the funniest ads their sponsors will let them get away with. The Me Undies ad was truly legendary!
The mystery does get a little convoluted in season 2, and it gets harder to follow. The way the various interviews get broken up according the conversations' threads makes it hard to keep up with the gazillion clues that are being dropped.
I really hope we get a second half to season 3! In terms of emotional resolution, I feel alright with the end of season 3, but I really want to see some of these mysteries get wrapped up. If nothing else, I would love more resolution to Strand's relationship with his wife and daughter. Emotionally, those are still big parts of who he is as a character, and I can't imagine the podcast moving forward without addressing them somehow. I'm fine with this ending — the fans can theorize and try to fill in the blanks — but my reaction is definitely softened by the fact that I listened to the whole podcast in less than a week. Had I been listening for the 2-3 years it aired, I think I'd be much more frustrated with the lack of resolution.
