Anatomy of doubt

I watched Unbelievable on Netflix not realising it was based on a true story, I cried at the conclusion of Marie’s story and to hear the truth of her terrible experience in her own words on my favourite podcast This American Life was incredibly powerful. Excellent journalism; stories thoughtfully told, this team always leaves me thinking.

Love, love, LOVE!

This is such a great podcast! My only constructive feedback would be that it would be great to make it a little more international, the stories about American politics are not my favourite. Also, international ads would be a good way to use the international audience to attract more funding.
Keep up the good work I love being able to peek into other people’s lives...
