Very Entertaining

Really enjoyed hearing about his story and getting to hear from so many different people involved with the case. The editing and music was a little juxapositional to the story - it sounded like I should be on spring break rather than listening to a podcast about a really weird and horrible guy.

Intrigued

All the Christians who are slamming the hosts for being snarky about this subject matter is the reason I am about to hit play on episode one! If you’ve offended Christians it usually means you’re doing something right. Sorry, not sorry.

Absolutely Captivating and Well Done

Not sure if this story is more impactful for those of us living in the Bible Belt. But I mean after Jerry got himself into all that trouble during Covid, I feel like anyone can find themselves intrigued by him, his behaviors and Liberty itself. I spent several days lost in this story while cleaning up the house, so it was a perfect journey
