She was a homophobe.

Great podcast.

Well Done!

This was, in my view, a difficult story to tell fairly. Certainly, there are shifting biases while the investigation develops, as there should be. I appreciate that the authors acknowledge them. In the end, this podcast is an intriguing and well balanced piece of investigative journalism. Having said that, I hope the authors continue on with the side stories that emerged - e.g. investigating whether there is a potential link between all of the women who have died over the last two-year - Jessica Jaymes most recently; or, maybe more about the impact of being in front of the camera, as opposed to the director title put forth by Moore.

Excellent!!

I’m a podcast junkie and this podcast was recommended to me by a friend. I was enraptured from episode 1. Being that Mercedes was from Canada, and I live here as well, I felt a strange connection to her. Knowing that she just wanted to make a better life for herself, but could be r really find the love she was seeking, the outcome is heartbreaking 💔
