    Wondery Presents: The Apology Line

    Wondery Presents: The Apology Line

    If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series.

    Ep. 142 - The Apprentice

    The 1980s were a dangerous time to be a child in Ohio. Throughout the decade, several young girls were abducted, raped and murdered in seemingly connected crimes. Although one man, Robert Buell, would be convicted and sentenced to death for one of these crimes, some investigators believe Buell had an accomplice who was never caught.

    In the Scottish lowlands there stands an ancient castle that some historians claims holds a terrible secret. Although Glamis Castle has more than its fair share of ghost stories attached to it, there's an even darker rumor that a flesh and blood creature once lived inside the castle's walls.
