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.

Unbelievable story

Every single women (person) who is looking for a relationship should listen

What’s the Big Deal

I was told by many people that I HAD to listen to this podcast but I have zero idea what all the fuss was about. If you’ve ever seen an episode of Dateline NBC, you’ve seen this story before.

Not worth it

I’ve watched both the documentary of John and the Netflix miniseries of John and they both were better than this podcast. This podcast was slow and had a monotone voice telling the story. Didn’t captivate me at all.
