I would recommend you try one, catseye. What's the worst that could happen? In my personal opinion, it's occasionally a bit frustrating, with moments when a witness describes something and you think Danny (the interviewer) must then ask a screamingly obvious follow-up question - but he doesn't. But generally the cases investigated are dealt with quite well, with 'experts' commenting sensibly and suggesting possible explanations. No definite conclusions are ever reached, one way or the other. By and large, it's quite a superior programme - just not perfect. It does at least give listeners the chance to contribute their comments and theories, and they do have occasional episodes where they go over what has been sent in regarding previous episodes. Despite my reservations, it has become a 'listening highlight of the week' for me!
Agree 100% - it has some issues but it is definitely worth a listen and I continue to enjoy it.
I had to laugh at the start of this week's episode where Danny mentioned his claim that this series was the largest investigation of its kind, and he noted how some may question that. I laughed because that was one of the things I remarked upon in this thread when it first got started, as I thought it was a bold claim (and still do). It made me wonder whether Danny has been reading this thread himself, if not perhaps people were saying similar on social media!
