Description

In Season 1, The Girlfriends told the story of how a group of incredible women came together to bring down one bad ex-boyfriend and seek justice for the murder of Gail Katz.

But there’s one part of that story that’s still a mystery.

During the investigation into Gail’s case, a torso washed up on Staten Island and was misidentified as Gail. Nobody knows her name or what happened to her after she was ruled out from the case.

In Season 2, the amateur ladies detective club are back with a new mission: to uncover the identity of this woman and finally find Our Lost Sister.

It’s a very interesting story but the podcast is done terribly. The constant background music makes it difficult to tell when it’s an advert or the actual podcast. There is an advert every few minutes and why are people being introduced after they have already started talking. This could have been a fantastic podcast if done properly.

Hard for me to give these women a pat on the back when they had to be subpoenaed to testify against him. They spent years laughing about this psycho over lunch but wouldn't choose to do the right thing and say what they knew about him. Also, who signed off on this music? It's torture
