Mommy Doomsday

4.6/5

Critic Rating

The disappearance of two of Lori Vallow’s children in Rexburg, Idaho in September 2019 would expose a bizarre trail of death, devotion and Doomsday beliefs that captivated the nation… A haunting podcast from Keith Morrison and Dateline NBC.


Critic Reviews

Alison - PL • Podcast Librarian Mar 28, 2021

"This is a Dateline podcast, through and through: murder, wild back story, and the narrator that you know from catching Dateline on a Saturday night. The series, unsurprisingly, sounds a lot like if you listened to the audio only of a long Dateline episode. Overall, this is a wild story but not one that makes me care too much about the players. If you’re interested, it’s worth a listen, but I’d you’re not a true crime fanatic, this is an ok one to skip or just listen to in the background."

"Keith Morrison (aka Santa) is back to guide us with his disarmingly soothing baritone through the hellscape of the Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell story. If you have already seen the Dateline TV special surrounding this tragic story, much of this podcast will be redundant. The deeper you go, the stranger this gets. "

"Things get creepy quickly, and we hear about it directly from those who knew Lori and Chad in interviews conducted by Morrison and relayed in mesmerizing, disturbing detail."
