Excellent Work

I just binge listened to seasons 1-3. Holy cow. This is a well made series. I connected with season 1 on a personal level due to my indoctrination by school counselors into believing that I wouldn’t amount to anything without a college degree. It ended up being a waste of time and money. Seasons 2-3 are very informative and they explain in depth a piece of our current socio-political climate in a way that I only had partial knowledge of. Keep up the good work. The Jane Doe’s deserve justice. I hope this series continues.
