In the special case of Olivia Gant and her mother, Kelly Turner, the signs were there but Kelly was adept at hiding them or convincing those that suspected something that it wasn’t the case.

So good

Been looking for a podcast that I like for a while and someone recommended this one! So glad they did, spent the day painting and wizzed though it while listening

-10/10

Despite how jarring I often found the host I stayed subbed for so long because the stories were so good. However these days it’s so blatant I can no longer enjoy the podcast. So arrogant and insensitive! How about you listen to the feedback rather than banging on about how much you don’t care what people think? Good god.
