👍🏻Definitely Worth Your Time👍🏼

This was fun! I was very glad to discover this bonus episode, though it contains absolutely no spoilers as advertised, just mainly insights from the journalists on what it was like researching this story and interviewing the subjects. This is a fitting end to the West Cork saga, though of course once the trial begins, I imagine the saga will continue. Two thumbs up!

N.B. Any listener who enjoyed West Cork will also love the six-part true crime🔪🔫🗡💉🔬 podcast called Bear Brook. Listen for free, either online or on the (free) NPR One app.

Nothing Answered

This was just a bunch of non-answers and hum-hoing. No new info was shared, nothing had happened yet in the case. A complete waste of a half hour

Well worth a listen

Although there are still unanswered questions, I felt the interview with the authors did provide some grounding to “West Cork”, and did advance the narrative.

I would totally disagree with other readers on the “spoiler” alert. Indeed, if you listened to this follow up 1st, you would know too much about how the book turned out. It would’ve spoiled the reading.

So read the really worthwhile “West Cork”, then circle back around to this addendum.

All in all, bravo.

good follow up

This 30 minute follow up was almost more interesting than the series. I felt like some questions were answered, although there's still no resolution to this case. It did make me appreciate the series more because it gives the listener the opportunity to go "behind the scenes", so to speak.

Good wrap-up

If you haven't listened to the West Cork story, go do so before listening to "Aftershow". It is totally worth your time. I, myself, am not a listener of documentaries or true life crime stories so when I decided to take this on as an Audible Original Listen I did not think I would make it to the end. West Cork was addictive and hard to walk away from. The local and blow-in characters in the story are fascinating and intriguing to listen too. The background story alone is captivating. The sound engineering and narrators Sam Bungey and Jennifer Forde transport you to this scenic and seemingly barren part of Ireland where people go to disappear. So for such a story to draw so much attention to the area must have been a total shock to the residents of the area.

West Cork: Aftershow is a followup to the original seres where Sam and Jennifer answer a few questions about the story and main characters. I could have used much more content and some of the answers understandably are vague because the story and court cases are still unfolding however after investing myself in the series this was quite satisfying to listen to.

I hope the reporters either followup further with this story when the final appeals are finished or can find a new story for fans of the series.

It's not a spoiler

Unless I missed something in this little half hour snippet, it's not a spoiler. They still don't know who did it so why would this be a spoiler? I wouldn't have listened to the opinion's of the creators if I'd known that is all this was going to be.

No story updates, but some additional info

Loved podcast. This post-chat was mostly about the production side. Still definitely worth hearing after story ended, since this was one you didn't really want to end,,,,

Don't bother

Sadly this was a waste of time, no further information at all. Not worth it.
