Terrible accident

Just finished the podcast, what a horrible accident, it is certainly thought provoking and makes for great discussion. I was just on Facebook (what did I just watch) and it so happened a video popped up that showed a child and mom walking along a path next to the road, the kid walked on a sewer/manhole and just like in the pod cast, the child fell in and the lid flipped closed.

Every mom’s nightmare

This is a tragic story that shines light on the inconsistencies of our justice system. Had Ashley White been a woman of better circumstances and means- the outcome would have panned out much differently.

Interesting story, BORING presentation

I was very interested in this case, but the way all of the information is presented was SO boring. The clips of tv shows or personal interviews presented were always way too long; would have done good with some commentary from the hosts within the clips presented, maybe it would have kept it more interesting. The focus of this podcast was very much in the socioeconomic status of the town rather than facts of the case or court proceedings. And that violin nonsense is TERRIBLE. I have no idea why anyone thought highly dissonant notes played on violins were a good background music idea. Had to skip through portions with this in it; it was way too distracting.

Good idea...not a fan of the execution

I don’t love this or hate this...I listed to half the episodes and wasn’t invested enough to even finish the last one I listened to. I felt for the family and the tragedy and feel the creators are doing a good job of shining the light on something that needs to be seen, understood, and explored.Two stars for a good effort.

Binge-worthy and devastating

This thoughtful and compassionate account of the death of a child and the mistakes of his parents will make you question your perception of addicts and those “below” our social caste. Heartbreaking and honest, neither excusing the choices of the parents involved nor condemning them.

Forever Judged

Unfortunately, people are quick to judge without knowing all of, or even most of the facts of every story. In this instance I felt for the family, the horrible judgment imposed on them from their past. Because of this they no longer get to see their children and will never have a “normal” again. May Ashley and her family find peace in this judgmental world. I hope she can smile again. 💔💔💔

A ‘Must Listen’ podcast!

To really grasp the truth about addiction and recovery as well as the implications on society and individual persons, listen to this podcast. To truly understand Ashley and her loss as well as how it is unrelated to her recovery from addiction, listen to this podcast. It’s an extremely fair and unbiased look into this tragic case. Kudos for TRUE fair and balanced investigative journalism! If you like Counterclock, Bear Brook, Missing Alissa, etc. you’ll love this podcast, even though it’s not ‘true crime’.

Glad I found this

I have to admit I would have and have been that judgy person due to media influence. After listening to this side of a story I feel bad for acting/feeling the way I have in the past. I’m not done listening yet but I’m hoping the outcome of the trial is in Ashley’s favor.

Story is okay REALLY BAD MUSIC

I wouldn’t have written this if it was this bad but the music is unbearable I can’t listen to it. Sounds like sawing wood. Why did they choose this awfulness???

Hindsight is 20/20

I really liked this podcast and how it was done. I remembered watching Nancy grace and hearing about this story, and thinking what a horrible person this woman was. Listening to this, my heart breaks for this mother. I wonder if Nancy grace ever goes back and looks at all the nasty stuff she has said about innocent people and apologized. This woman deserves an apology. Thank you for making this and telling the Actual Details.

My favorite podcast.

I have yet to find another series on podcast that is as intriguing and well spoken as this one is. It makes you question your opinions on child care and how much control a parent really has. Definitely my favorite nonfictional story podcast I’ve ever listened to.

Fails to answer most pressing question

Paints mother very sympathetically without presenting the other side and fails to answer most pressing question convincingly. Says a broken lid which wasn’t attached or functioning properly resealed itself. How about testing that theory? Graces over the suboxone issue. Probably did pass out after she took it and probably had to that often. This is common. What choice would they have for care of the kids while she was taking her drugs? They argue she cleaned her trailer regularly, but there was marijuana leaves from a grow operation that hadn’t been around for years according to her. Seems a bit sus. Tragic, but not sure she wasn’t accurately charged. Feel sorry for kids born into these circumstances. I don’t think there is any winning in these cases. Parents were both struggling with their self imposed reality that put them in over their head. These reporters obviously feel it was a witch hunt and I don’t think they quite make the case.

Great Podcast

I binged this in one day it was so riveting. This is an example of what solid journalism is. This shines a light on our quick to judge culture which brings out the pitchforks and torches, along with media sensationalism and “some say” sourcing. I didn’t know this story and I’m glad I found it here so I can make up my own mind. Please come back with another story for a season 2!

Sound quality awful

The podcast begins with a recorded conversation over a lousy cell phone, and is narrated by a person who I’m sure is Earnest and spent much time doing the research, but might have benefited from some voice training. Maybe it’s me and others would differ but I just could not continue listening.

Background “noise”

I enjoy the story, great job! The background noises / sound add-in (scrolling, etc.) are distracting.
