Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival. Reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

Great content

I listened to this after watching the Netflix series and documentary. Great for true crime listeners. Had great content including interviews with people involved.

Kept me captive

I listen to podcasts while walking my dog...the month I discovered this one I clocked 260 kms!

Disturbing story and well told.
