Missing

Am I the only one who thinks he never left the house alive ? He is supposed to be outside playing supposedly the foster Mom checked him within minutes & he was gone but she heard nothing no cars no one running away just doesn’t make sense

Boring... try another missing persons podcast!

What started as a promising missing persons true crime podcast turned out to be a redundant story splayed out between too many episodes. If you want to hear the same information explained 12 different times, this podcast is for you! If not, find another podcast. Quite disappointed!

Enjoyable well paced story of a complex case

This is a complex case. Yes, its drawn out, because in real life, these things are. You’ll be introduced to William, his parents, the circumstances of his disappearance, the Australian legal system, the system William was part of, and how it all fits together. This is a great podcast, and as a kiwi, I’ve learn’t a lot from this podcast I never read in the news here in NZ. I find the host an enjoyable listen, who makes a complex case understandable and structured.

Skip the “Secrets and Lies” episode

I’ve been on board until this episode of nothingness. Hearing painfully dull and uselessly irrelevant asides on how someone handles getting served a subpoena...Jesus GET ON WITH IT. Three episodes worth stretched far too thin. Not recapturing Teacher’s Pet glory on this.

Please choose a different photo

The photo that is used of this child is almost frightening - maybe go with one of him smiling? Kind of slow and boring. The investigator is so focused on secrecy and they really should be understanding that the state wants privacy for these kids, the carers and their biological families. What does it matter that the child is in foster care? It doesn’t.

Nothing much to say but stretched out SO much

This is a podcast that stretches very scant material well beyond break point. Also the over kill on the class “issue” is a strain to listen to. Lastly, the odd intonation of the main narrator grates from start to finish

Frustrating and repetitive

Get to the point!!! The unfolding of the content across episodes is achingly slow and the interviews feel almost fake, as though they’ve hired actors. I honestly question if this is real or simulated.

Good but Dragging it out

It is a fascinating and terrible story. However, you are really dragging it out now.

Ridiculously sensationalized

Terrible biased reporting that words things inappropriately. Saying things like "that was a lie" to any of the news stories claiming William went missing from his Nana's. Yes, his Foster Nana's. Still applicable and honest especially considering the laws protecting foster carers and the situation that put William and his sister in care in the first place. I listened to the other podcast on this case and was looking forward to hearing possibly more details or different details from this one. The journalism is shotty at best. I gave it an honest try and cannot listen anymore. And I love The Australian's other podcasts!! Kind of makes me wonder if those were sensationalized so drastically as well🤔😞 it's sad to see really.

Misleading and sensationalist

I only managed to listen to the first ten minutes of episode one when the reporter states “The police said he went missing from his grandmothers house, they lied” then spoke to his biological grandmother outside of the foster grandmothers home. There are so many issues with this. William lived with his foster family from the time he was an infant, regardless of what this reporter may think his foster grandmother was very much a grandparent. To violate the foster grandmothers privacy by dragging the biological grandmother out to her home is another fairly shocking act and raises questions about the journalists ethics. Finally, police did not lie and the picnic was not mislead. If this is the standard this podcast will follow I’d rather not listen.

Sad

This is a great delivery of the info on this very disturbing case. My 1st instinctive thoughts about this case so far is that someone could’ve been hiding underneath the house, since the houses in the neighborhood have been described as being up on cinder blocks. Hiding there and that’s who the boy Roared at and the person pulled the boy underneath until he/she could make a run for it. The other thought is that when the family made the 3rd stop on the road, I find it odd they pulled the kids out of the car to put on their pull-ups. When I went on road trips with my kids at those ages, I would have changed them in the car, not outside it. I’m wondering if one or both parents could’ve done something with him at that point. I haven’t heard yet if there is any corroboration that he was in fact at the foster mothers, mothers home.

If I hear that tiger roar one more time...

You’re sure getting some mileage out of the recording of a child making a roaring sound. I like the host’s style and delivery, but these sound effects are silly and detract from the story.

2 weeks in a row you have teased what the foster mom saw that morning. Ridiculous! Just tell us instead of mentioning it like you are going to tell us and then the entire episode you don’t mention it till the last minute to say ..... next week

Sensationalizing a story

There are two podcasts currently on this child. I listened to a couple of episodes of the other one and then started to listen to this one. I wanted to see which one was better. The first part of the episode the host says some along the lines of “they say William disappeared from his Nani’s. That’s a lie. Here is his Nana”. So the Nana says she’s never seen this house. Omg. It was at his foster grandmothers house! The foster parents raised him. This podcast surely knows this was false sensationalism. If they don’t THEY SHOULD! Credibility is shot. The other podcast devoted a lot of time explaining the foster care/bio parent situation. Just tell the facts and stop trying to make it more dramatic! You know they were talking about the foster nana! 🙄
