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.

Worth listening to.

I hope Terra finds the peace of mind she so deserves.
Well reported for the most part and in my opinion well worth listening to. Coercive control is a frightening thing, perhaps people should make themselves more aware of the signs to look for when they begin a new relationship.
