Started listening chills ran up my spine. I remember hearing this story before. Gwen Des sister was a friend of my parents. She opened up once about her long lost brother. So sad she never knew the truth.

Interesting but sad

This is a really good podcast, found it by accident and had no idea about Des. Listened to the whole podcast over one day and found it totally intriguing.
