I just finished the pod. Wow.
I feel like they (producers) used John. I understand why, at first, they contacted him and wanted to see if there was a story around the murder. But then, once they realized there wasn't --- it was like John was some character for them.
I just don't understand the purpose of continuing on. It wasn't like they were able to help Tyler or find money for the mom. It just felt so hipsterish.
I particularly was bothered when Brian made the comment about John having people in his life, that tried to help him. Frankly, I was bothered by Brian. A lot. lol.
I'm sure I'll have more thoughts as I sit with it.
