Very nicely put together

I thought this podcast was very nicely put together with a lot of details that I wasn't aware of. I would highly recommend.

Waste of time

If you wish to waste many hours of your life then listen. Poorly written, way too much redundancy (we got it the first time). Detective presents all evidence and convinces the listener and himself — conspiracy But then at the end he states it’s an accident. I think the Kennedy assassins got to him at chapter 12.

Murder of John Jr

It was not the right that murdered JJ. It was the left that JJ was going to expose as Trump is doing now.
