Episode 28: Murder in the First & Henri Young
4 days ago
In 1939, convicted bank robber Henri Young tried and failed to escape from Alcatraz. Three years later, after spending time in solitary confinement, he stabbed Rufus McCain, a fellow escapee, to death. His subsequent trial hinged on his brutal treatment within the Alcatraz system and particularly while in solitary. In 1995, his story was adapted into a film, Murder in the First, which presented a very favorable, if somewhat inaccurate, portrait of his life. This is Based on a True Crime.

FUN FACT: I bought the movie at a movie store inside of a Hispanic Plaza a that I worked for two months before it was closed because no one buys movies anymore. Love the show, love Chelsea's laugh and love David's reviews. Keep it up guys

Great concept, some issues
I really enjoy the content and the conversation basically, but there is something that is killing it for me and if a conscious effort were made to control this particular behavior it would likely be 5 stars. That incessant nervous laughter that Chelsea has a deeply ingrained habit of is like nails on a chalkboard. I know she mentions she knows she does it. It is really difficult for the listener in an audio only format I'm afraid to say. I do think it could be worked on and lessened and lessened until it was gone or I wouldn't mention it. Every sentence is broken up by this laughter that just becomes incredibly irritating, sometimes not even a whole sentence can be finished without it. It also makes her sound unconfident or like she's embarrassed by her own voice and opinions. She's knowledgeable and pleasant when speaking normally, but then when the laughter is so persistent it just blows it. She says she's a doctor, maybe there is some sort of therapy that could help her break this nervous habit. For podcasting, it would be a step towards improvement and success to make a serious and determined commitment to phasing out the constant breaks and trail offs of nervous laughter. I think it's a great show and she's great, just hoping to make a suggestion that would only make it better. We all have our little quirks, but if you are going to do audio entertainment, you can kind of think of it like training for any new endeavor that you would do to improve and be the best you can be. And shaking off that habit, at least during the course of recording a show, would immensely help the listener experience.
