    The final episode of the podcast also hears from Annette's friends and acquaintances, who share their long-held suspicions about who might have had something to do with Annette's death.

port horn ,

Background noise

Hard to listen to due to crackle and pop sounds in background in the intro speaking. Could be a great story but hard to listen to on headphones due to this.
