What?!

Exactly. What?! This woman was just totally insane and Jamie should not have been sent to jail as long as he was, as he was under her influence. Kieth Morrison turned this whole thing into a compelling roller coaster, but it wasn’t as good as other dateline pods like The Thing About Pam or Mommy Doomsday (listen if you are a crime junkie like me) all and all, pretty good pod! Kieth Morrison rocks 🪨

Good! So good.

It’s like watching tv and reading a book. My hands are free and I’m multitasking. Best invention ever. Loved it. I really like dateline, but these series are awesome!

This is a MUST to listen too!

This was the craziest story! My mother in law listened to all 6 episodes during a road trip and could not stop listening to it! You will not be disappointed in this crazy story!
