Reviews For Mared & Karen

The best narrative long form investigative podcast available right now. Beautifully produced. Simply Perfection. Kendall deserves a Peabody... Please listen. Don’t let this story Disappear...
Can’t stop listening! Awesome story telling
Overall an excellent podcast. I’m a lifelong West Virginian and a true crime junkie. Great narrative structure and production value. I liked the touch of adding music from artists in the Morgantown area, but I found myself having to turn the volume down every time a song snippet was played then cranking it back up to hear the narration.
Interesting story. Narrator is excellent, well researched. Awesome music. Check it out!
If you are a true crime fan do yourself a favor and listen to this pod! Very professionally produced, engaging host, interesting story... plus some FANTASTIC indie music!! A+++++
Overall a GREAT podcast - but at the end, you introduce a show, a new show, and you FAIL to tell us what it is? Literally threw the entire thing in the wastebasket. How can you give us a 3 min preview of a new show and not tell us what the name of it is!
I am so thankful that I stumbled across this podcast!! It was so well done and so interesting!! I can’t wait to binge more by this group!!
I was a freshman at another college in the area at the time the girls went missing. I never heard anymore about the case. Fascinating all the twists and turns that happened. The way Governor Arch Moore was involved doesn’t surprise me at all!!😡 Great job to all involved telling this story!
I binged listened to this in two days. Very well done. Bravo to the producers!
Very good storytelling. On par with Up and Vanished or Serial
This is a really well done podcast or “passion project,” as they call it. Did not know much about this case & think the team did a great job- particularly towards the end of the season- at flushing out new information & summing up their theories on leads. I also really do like their choice of local musicians... but dang they sure love their theme song. There are lengthy stretches of nothing but music that feel inefficient & frustrating to sit thru.
I live in Morgantown, where the story takes place, so I was particularly interested in this podcast. But any fan of true crime podcasts will find this an enjoyable addition.
Entertaining hosts. Great music. Well-researched.
Such an interesting case and very well researched! Thank you for putting the time into this and doing it right!
The musical score of this podcast really advances the story. Oh! To be in Morgantown on a Friday night!

5/5

Well researched. Awesome story. Glad I found it after most episodes were launched so i could binge.
This is a great true crime podcast. The material is researched and sourced, the narration is professional, it uses local music. I have really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the final episode.
Very captivating. Especially interesting having lived my entire life in the pittsburgh area and visiting Morgantown on many occasions. Good stuff
Kudos for finding a very obscure crime (like not even a Wikipedia entry obscure) and truly bringing it to life in every sense of the word. This is the sort of thing that inspires people to become journalists. Really great stuff.
Great information, well told and very fascinating. Great job!
Very well produced and compelling! The only things I didn’t like are the breaks of music that last too long and really aren’t needed and Sarah. She’s just super annoying.
I’m thinking there are many of us seeking stories that not only are fascinating, but the podcast presents research and researchers in their own voices on the subject. This podcast does that, keeping the storytelling vibe, and carries the listener through the ups and downs of the stories. I was so glad to find this.
Good research on a fascinating case.
Interesting story with multiple twists...episode 7 is an excellent listen. Highly recommended
As a native West Virginian and current Morgantown resident, this podcast hits close to home. It is brilliantly made and I look forward to each episode. Keep up the great work! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Well written, well produced and well told story with exceptional music and understanding of the regional nature of the story.

Can’t wait for the two new episodes
Perfectly produced and great interviews and pacing. The reenactments get a little odd at times, otherwise an excellent podcast
This podcast was so well done. I was IMMEDIATELY roped in- binged so hard. It’s very clear there was a lot of time and research devoted into telling this story.
I very much enjoyed this podcast. Give it a listen.
This is a very engageing and effective true crime podcast. The production is slick and thoughtful. It feels both familiar and original at the same time. And the music is strange and atmospheric and the perfect choice for this story. I'm super impressed.
Well done Podcast,I love the rabbit holes and different directions that this case(albeit horrible) treads.The whole case is Creepy with all the questions that we are left with....Sound Quality and the narrative interplay is great,music is fantastic as well.Being a superstitious Hillbilly myself,this is right up my side of the Hill.Thanks!
Love this podcast. True crime at its best.
I’m surprised more people don’t know about this gem. Extremely underrated!
Loved this. Interesting true crime story well told. Bonus was the local musicians.
No advertisements, great hosts, well-produced, with exceptional local music. If you have any interest in past cases like this, you'll like this one.
Great pid cast and great story telling. Superbly produced! I always heard about this story but never knew the details. Can’t say enough good about this pod cast.
I live in the Mon county area and had no idea about this case. It's so interesting, when I mentioned it to my grandparents they recounted their memories of this case and the ones talked about early in episode 1. It's so wired and interested to learn about this areas strange past. Highly recommend.
I am so happy to have found this. After faking in love with how intrigued and haunted I felt from listening to “In the Dark” a couple months ago, I couldn’t be more excited to have found this. The historical info about my own town, the amazing soundtrack, and the passion demonstrated by Sarah and crew (which I only mention her by name cause I know her—OMG Sarah you rock!— it’s all the perfect mix and just perfectly represents the kind of eclectic intellect that flows from #MorgantownWV. I’m only on episode #4, but I’m now obsessed! Thanks for the fantastic effort and best of luck with anything Kromatic does.
I didn’t have high expectations when I first started listening to this podcast and was pleasantly surprised! It’s a fascinating story and the podcast is really well done. I also love that they incorporate music from local artists.

Great story and podcast!
So glad I came upon this podcast! If you are into true crime, you won't be disappointed.
It was very interesting hearing more about a local legend that has become part of local lore.
My mother-in-law first told me this story--the bodies were found near her childhood home on Owl Creek Rd. Great to hear a locally-produced podcast that tells the whole story!
