Interesting Take on the Subject

These shows are a nice addition to the Audible membership offer. They are of course free and I find them very useful to listen to when time is short or as a break between books. This one is another American production, it would be great to have more UK-based documentaries, but it's reasonably well done and presented in a lively fashion.

While it doesn't go into great depth, given its short length the stories were interesting, particularly the last episode where I thought that the journalists did dig a little deeper into the issues faced by a troubled town.

Only word of warning is that the first episode contains a fairly grisly account from a witness of a crime scene so if that would affect you best to stay clear of that one.

Good idea, but ...

I think the idea for this podcast is really interesting, but unfortunately the execution is not particularly sensitive. In episode 1, one of the survivors - Wendy - is portrayed with such pity and a certain amount of disdain, it left me feeling incredibly uncomfortable. Wendy had gone through unimaginable trauma - instead of just letting her talk, the journalist was simply rude, mainly to fit in with the narrative of 'damned spot'. In a later episode, groups of people were referred to as cockroaches. It's a shame, it had potential and the stories themselves were interesting. But the treatment of some people was unprofessional and uncalled for.
