I like it when Candace talks alone. Not a fan of the co-host. Can’t Candace just tell the story without this annoying woman interrupting?

Oh christ! We get it. We’re not children. Enough with the disclaimers. We know she’s telling a story. Are people that sensitive now?

I do find it troublesome that she refers to targets of an investigation as "bad guys", and the investigators as "good guys"... This is a gross oversimplification and a nod towards dehumanization, as no human is either 100% good or 100% bad. Using this terminology also potentially corrupts the quality of the investigation: the purpose of doing an investigation is to determine *whether* an individual has violated the law. Calling them "bad guys" before the investigation has even started encourages confirmation bias at every step of the process.

"Morally Indefensible" is another great podcast that goes into detail about this murder, the subsequent trial, and Joe McGinniss's correspondence with convicted family annihilator Jeffrey MacDonald that shaped his book and his views about the case.

I love the theme music in this season better than last season’s. This episode was interesting. I don’t remember hearing about this case. I am surprised she was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia! I am not an expert but completely disagree with that DX.

A license is required to operate a motor vehicle; why not require a license to operate a firearm? This would at least ensure minimal training in safety and proper use & storage, and weed out applicants with a documented history of violence and/or murder, like Amy here. This bitch is clearly psychotic and should have NEVER been allowed anywhere near a gun!

The way that parents treat their children is unimaginably important. we can see the irresponsible parents and their damaging effects. not everyone should b allowed to have kids.

Lol I once had a manager who did the exact same thing: he fired me because I disagreed with him that my job was to agree with everything he said. That's called malignant narcissistic mannerisms, Jeffrey Connelly 🧐

Also because of this episode, I was able to sign the petition which I was not aware of. I am sharing the website petition on social media. Missing white women syndrome is absolutely a real thing and I find it extremely frustrating!  Thank you so much again!

Thank you so much for covering this case! I really wish that there was a separate law enforcement that just focused on missing people cases across the country. I listen to a podcast “Vanished” and I often I hear how law-enforcement does not take missing person cases seriously enough or have the time to help families of missing people. I think it’s absolutely horrendous how Daniel‘s father has been treated and ignored by the local police. I really hope that this is not a racist killing. I hope I am in correct in my feeling, that possibly, the man that was meeting Daniel at the worksite may have reacted suspiciously to Daniel when he arrived as a black man. I just have a feeling that man has something to do with Daniel missing.

Miss Candace is so awesome. Her stories about the early days of women working in the FBI are so cool, and seem to be positive for the most part. I love the idea of a nurse working her shifts and being recruited by the FBI.

Maybe she shouldn't have had so many kids. How cruel to bring innocent lives into a world of scarcity, hunger, and deprivation.
