Too often focuses on things that are irrelevant. A lot of fast forwarding needed.

huge reply-all fan here and also listener too many shows like criminal so you would think this podcast would be my jam. Objectively, this podcast is very well produced and the audio production is great. that having been said that, this podcast is almost unlistenable. it's not just that the subject matter is dark. is that the whole town is very moist and lifeless and I really cannot force myself to care one bit about any of the characters. maybe that's because the two main characters are sociopaths.

Description

For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.

Introducing: Monster: The Zodiac Killer
171
From the team who brought you Atlanta Monster comes a new season and a new monster. Season 2 tackles the riveting story of one of the most infamous serial killers in history - the Zodiac Killer.&nbsp;<br><br>In the late 1960s, a mysterious, faceless fugitive attacked and killed five people in San Francisco. As the murderer went about his gruesome work, he regularly mocked the police and the public by sending letters containing confusing cryptograms to the Bay Area newspapers. Throughout the exhaustive search, there were 2,500 Zodiac suspects, yet none strong enough to make an arrest and, 50 years later, the killer has never been identified.<br>With new interviews and information, join hosts Payne Lindsey (of Up &amp; Vanished) and Matt Frederick (of Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know) as they take a deep dive into the real story behind the headlines and new clues that may offer insight into the identity of this nameless fugitive. Listen and subscribe to MONSTER: The Zodiac Killer on Apple Podcasts, the iHeartRadio app, or wherever you get your podcasts.&nbsp;<br><br>Learn more about advertising on the HowStuffWorks podcasts at <a href='http://www.howstuffworks.com/advertisers.htm'>www.howstuffworks.com/advertisers.htm</a><br><br>And to learn about your ad choices when listening to podcasts, visit <a href='https://www.howstuffworks.com/privacy.htm#ad-choices'>https://www.howstuffworks.com/privacy.htm#ad-choices</a>
