    Don’t know about it

    Whole story is built on Dorothy’s story that’s not really that credible I’d say

    A little biased but entertaining

    Well presented and entertaining. Can be biased at times; but it’s up to the listener to balance it out for themselves.

    There are many insights

    The other reviews are a bit harsh. I do not feel the story is told too slowly. It is a story that tells different sides of the perception of the people involved. I would say give it it s try.

    Ridiculous

    Terrible podcast full of speculation and lacking facts. I would give it a 0 rating if it was possible. What was Wondery thinking to produce something so idiotic?

    What seemed like it was going to be an interesting story ruined by poor narration and gimmicky repetition.

    Sooooo slow!

    Moves very slow and a ton of info and interviews & stories about people that had nothing to do with the crime.

    Interesting story- but very biased

    Was an interesting story, but very biased. I got to the point where I couldn’t listen to it any longer. Sort of cheesy interactions between hosts and advertisements. And couldn’t stand Dorothy referring to Verne as “Verny.” Felt like it was a waste of time.

    Good story, bad execution

    The main story is good, but all of Dorothy’s over-the-top speculation and clearly biased approach really takes you out of it. The host is good and should have just interviewed Dorothy rather than having her be a co-host. Dorothy’s execution actually makes you root for Suzanne, which I’m guessing wasn’t her goal. The voiceover acting was fake and over dramatized.

    Do hosts know that podcasts aren’t audiobooks…?

    The story is pretty interesting if a bit slow, and although some of the narration is good, lots of it is apparently Dorothy just reading passages directly from her own book…? The result ends up being a strange, disappointing hybrid of a podcast and an audiobook, which aren’t the same thing for a reason. I’m a little surprised the producers at Wondery were ok with this… it’s very weird and unfortunately sort of boring at the same time :(

    Very biased

    What a disappointment. Simply one woman’s sad twisting of facts until they resemble her truth. When it comes to sociopathy I suspect Dorothy may fit the mould.

    One of the worst

    I listen to A LOT of true from podcasts. Wondery produced content is a little all over the map. But THIS WAS HOT GARBAGE. On every level, in every way it fails. It’s irresponsible, it’s poorly executed, it’s meandering, it’s boring. Avoid

    I’m Getting Through It

    But the fact that each episode never picks up where the last one left off, is so aggravating. I am also ready to hear from some of Suzanne’s side.

    I’m not a quitter

    But I had to quit listening to this. I wanted so badly to finish, and made it to the beginning of the last episode, but i just can’t push through to to end. I think it did get a little better once they stopped letting Dorothy read from a script as frequently, but that couldn’t save it. I think it’s a relative relationship that lent itself to an opportunity for Dorothy to exploit it. She clearly has limited insight into the relationship she claims to have so much knowledge about. I get the feeling she’s manufactured a lot of this for her own gain.

    Dorothy is a rockstar 😎

    The negative comments about Dorothy are totally unfair. Thank you for sharing this deeply personal story with us 😘

    So dragged out!

    What you get when you take a 20 min story and drag it out 5 hours. I could barley make it through the last episode to only have it be just as disappointing as the entire story. I hoping something exciting would happen. Don’t waste your time.

    Unreliable narrator

    I found this podcast very one sided. Dorothy was a teenager who worshipped her uncle and is not a reliable view point on what happened between her uncle and his wife. She decided that Susan is a psychopath based on her teenage memories of her which are clearlyBiased and no one else in the podcast says anything about it. There is also no evidence that Susan had anything to do with the deaths of her other husbands none of who died while she was married to them. It seems more likely that Susan was a smart woman who was not submissive as was wanted at the time and that her relationship with Vern was very dysfunctional and abusive.

    So Obviously Biased

    Would have been way more interesting if they had stopped to even consider a side of the story that wasnt "Suzanne is a raging psycopath"-- there were moments so ridiculously dramatized and biased I couldn't help but laugh... not exactly a thorough storytelling

    Not at all credible

    Sounded like an interesting concept - but this really feels like a family member who cannot accept how things turned out, and some podcasters willing to pursue weak leads that they know are nothing substantial in the name of dramatic effect and listens.

As it follows Dorothy’s discoveries, MANslaughter explores questions around the psychology of crime, the ways women are made responsible in families, and the lasting impact of trauma.A final encounter between Suzanne and Dorothy reveals a complex connection that even that gunshot cannot shatter.
