‘Talking Cold’ Podcast Digs Into Issues
“It was so much more difficult with Joyce because the only recording that we have, that is known to exist of Joyce, is one of the worst moments of her life,” Cawley said in a new KSL podcast, Talking Cold, which will explore the issues raised in Season 2 and offer insight into why he made the journalistic choices he did. “And I think the risk becomes as it was with Susan Powell. That that horrible event that happened to Joyce becomes the sole defining characteristic by which we talked about her. And you’ll see this if you go back and look at old news clippings, if she’s identified at all, it doesn’t talk at all about who she was where she’s from, her family, you know, the things that she loved.”
