I really enjoyed listening to this and found it to be well presented and interesting, however, I couldn't help feel that it was biased towards Gilroy in order to highlight the issues with the judicial system and make a point. This became frustrating for me. For example, there is a bit where they mention that all of his co-workers believe he was responsible and that he was a strange and difficult character. The presenter then comments that she hadn't picked up on that when talking to him, and the podcast moved on. We don't hear WHY they all think that, what has David done in order for them all to believe him guilty of MURDER? They also have a clip of Suzanne's friend saying that she told him that her and David often went to the basement. They then don't push this AT ALL with David when he says he has only been there once with a manager. I didn't understand why they didn't say to David that Suzanne said otherwise. That's a big deal. He says he hasn't got a key, but how is he getting in there with Suzanne?... Interesting listen, but chunks of information missing in my opinion.

Would you listen to FREE: A Christmas Carol again? Why?

In my opinion, the best Christmas story there is. A very good version, and absolutely wonderful for a free gift. I feel that listening to this each year may well become a Christmas tradition.
