Extreme leftist bias!

This show is promoted as a boy who kills his two roommates due to exposure to extremist Neo-Nazi and Islamic ideology. Well, it takes until Episode 5 to dare to mention extremist Islamic ideology especially in the context of killing. Episodes 1- 4 focus on neo-Nazis and then it veers as a byline into radical Islam, the real root of the killing. Episode 4 focuses on President Trump bashing. President Trump is portrayed in this podcast as a white supremacist despite his constant and clear denouncement of white hate groups and efforts to help minorities. What caused me to stop entirely this disgusting program was the promotion and portrayal of the terrorist organization CAIR as a mild, helpful pro-islam group, CAIR is an extremist Islamic organization known to promote hate against Jews and adhere to promotion of Islam above Western countries. Beware, this murderer is an extremist Islamic who yelled Allahu Akbar after killing two roommates, yet the true motive is a byline in this program. This seems to be in line with Audible's current pro liberal agenda. Audible thugs, you can keep removing this review but I will post this here and elsewhere if necessary in search of honest take on events. It’s been removed over 15 times so far!

Couldn’t make it past the propaganda

Once they started talking about video games and violence I checked out. I can’t listen to factually inaccurate information. Wish Audible vetted fake news content on their platform.

Good but Audible podcast setup is infuriating

This is an interesting - and scary - story about extremism in the US and beyond. It's told well, in a familiar format.
It's the first time I've got an Audible 'podcast'. I downloaded all the episodes. Very annoying that it just stops after each one, no way to automatically play the next episode. There also appears to be no way to order them, they are listed from last to first. Wouldn't get something in podcast format again for that reason

Didn't Hear About It in the news

interesting podcast. I have a pretty vast knowledge of the Alt Right but was unaware of this group and this story. It was researched and told well

Unsettling, but gripping

Another reciewer mentioned that once the podcast discussed video games and violence, he check out. If he would have listen further he would have learned that the podcast wasn't supporting the claim that video games correlate to violence.
This was an informative podcast and is unsettling because it shows that young individuals can be swept away by extremists without parents realizing what is happening.

Disturbing, but Excellent

Really great storytelling and narration. I wish it was a work of fiction though. Hopefully, others will be able to see signs in their youngsters and seek help at the earliest possible onset.

Well researched, very interesting pod!

I binged this podcast in two days because it had me hooked from the beginning! My partner also tuned in halfway through because he overheard it and was curious to hear the story through. Max did a great job on this; it was well researched, thorough, and moving. One of the interviews even had me in tears, and I felt his skills as a journalist shine through as the subjects of his interviews shared vulnerable, heartbreaking stories. Would definitely recommend.

If you believe this kid your a tool

First off I wanna say this book is completely biased and is pure fake news. So this kid Devon Arthur’s let me start on him so this kid was never a neo-nazi nor was he a member of Islam or isis he is also not a Christian this is the perfect example of some punk kid who wants to impress some online goofs he meets so kills his 2 roommates who are “nazis” because they are in humane & planning these awful things I call complete BS on his entire story. When you get to the interrogation part this kid sounds so stupid he is in there for killing 2 roommates but tries to completely deflect everything from himself & make it out they were the ones in the wrong he was just doing the world a good deed. This is also some of what is wrong with the justice system because now he has been deemed incompetent to stand trail because he is playing the “crazy card”. This is why people do what they do now because you can do things like this then act “crazy” & get away with it this punk kid knows what he is doing he realizes while he was sitting in jail that once he gets to prison he will get treated in there & nobody will have his back so he is doing whatever it takes to not go. I can’t believe how dumb this author is that wrote this because it sure sounds like he is just sucking up every word this kid says like it’s the truth. Also it seems very biased because they blame video games & president trump & the “far right” for a lot of his problems. This book is nothing more then a leftist view & propaganda stay away from this trash. Audible you should do better then releasing this kind of nonsense.
