Needs better research
I usually enjoy podcasts like this, but I can't endorse this one. Many of the basic facts are incorrect. For example, Johnny Gosch went missing in Iowa, not Idaho. That's an enormous oversight. Putting incorrect information out there about his case does a huge disservice to his mom, who is still searching for answers. That whole conversation should have been left on the cutting room floor. That's what editing is for. Wikipedia is also not the best source for information. It can be wrong or biased. You need original, firsthand sources such as court documents, witness testimony, photographs, maps. Do your research! If you aren't going to do your own research, you could do a show like Crime Writers On where they discuss and have their own take on some other podcast or show. Or, you could choose less publicized cases and actually help by providing media attention to them. But please, don't call up random families. Instead, provide them with a way to contact you and let them tell the story in their own words. Then, fact check the information by obtaining firsthand source materials and put it all together so that listeners will come away more informed. I hope that this feedback is helpful and that you take it seriously. I do not want to be discouraging but rather give you food for thought. You have a responsibility to the public because of the serious nature of the topic you have chosen.
