Good Topics, Bad Narration

The information and topics are perfect. The episodes are very well researched and very informative. The narration leaves a lot to be desired. It is a VERY dry and boring narration style and there is zero production value (such as sound effects, etc). It sounds like you’re listening to an audio textbook rather than an entertaining podcast.

Educational Entertainment

I have yet to find a Parcast original podcast that I have not enjoyed. My favorite part of Assassinations is how they talk about both the assassin and the person assassinated, but they they talk about global impact and what may or may not have happened due to the death. It’s interesting to theorize and they teach you details you may not have known or considered. Thanks!!

Full of mistakes

There’s so much wrong information in the Leo Ryan/Jonestown episode that I can’t trust anything these people say. Next!

Guy Bradley

As a Floridian listener, found the Guy Bradley episode particularly fascinating. A very interesting part of history I had no clue about, love how this podcast dives into such captivating tales.

Learn how to pronounce EXECUTE

Love this podcast, but it drives me batty every time Kate Leonard attempts to say the word “execute” or any of its derivatives. The word is spelled with an X, NOT 2 G’s. She says “eggsecute,” “eggscution,” and “eggsecuted.” I would think, as a narrator or story teller on a podcast such as this one, you would be able to pronounce words in the English language properly. Apparently not.

Dishonest

Some of the stuff you do is ok as far as it goes but I find enough dishonesty in some of the historical notes that I can no longer listen. Too much supposition.

Stop the foreshadowing

Great stories. Stop giving away the end in your intro! Defeats the point of listening to the podcast.

Stop updating what’s available.

It’s really annoying that you guys are giving bs updates just to move your title to the top of the list. You either have a new episode or you don’t. Stop updating what’s available!

Sam Cooke information incorrect.

I typically like this podcast but one major thing stood out in this episode. Medgar Evans was not killed in a Mississippi church fire, he was shot and killed by Byron de la Beckwith in 1963. That’s what the Nia Simone’ song Mississippi Goddamn was about. A little research can go along with.

Winifred Hancock?

Goodness. Garfield defeated Winfield Scott Hancock, a Union Major General who led the 2nd corps in the Army of the Potomac and was wounded severely at Gettysburg. His namesake was Winfield Scott, the only Lt General between Washington and Grant albeit a brevet rank . . . .It’s useless. I’ll hush.

Really?

The inaccuracies of the Sam Cooke death make my head swim. How do you even classify this as an assignation? This was a self defense homicide. The girl called 911? 911 didn’t exist for decades. You diminish the quality of your work with such blatant shoddy ness.

Stop over pushing other shows so heavily

While I enjoy most parcast shows include this one, I am really annoyed of having a repetitive 20 min section showcasing the same show. They can make you so sick of their new show before you try it. Nothing makes me not want to try a new show then being force to hear 20 min of it I over and and over. I will not be listening to Medical Mysteries. I’ve already contacted them and told them each time I hear it and and stuck listening to while driving and unable to skip over I’ll give them a 1 star review. I’m also not crazy about them asking for a 5 star review instead of just asking for people to rate & review. But beware with parcast that you will get annoyed by their over pushing of new shows. I like it better when they make it separate episode as oppose to including it in the same episode. They do both, which make no sense. The separate episode Way is so much better.

On the cutting edge of political correctness

This podcast has potential but to say the meaningless BCE instead of BC, that has been in used for hundreds of years, forces me to translate in my head what they mean. What is “The common era”? Common to what? And 1 BCE is one year before the era was common? Maybe they should call it, UE, or Uncommon Era, because the era was not yet common.

Sarah Tokars

This episode was a reach. Sarah wasn’t a prominent figure in history or society. She was just married to a shady lawyer. This was more of a domestic case between a married couple. Linking this to historical assassinations didn’t make sense.

Better than expected

I expected a dry retelling of an historic event. Instead this was a well written informative podcasts that was worth my time.
