So informative and interesting!
I love that they interviewed people involved with the show and people involved with the real life Anna drama.
Glorifying a criminal in the name of feminism
Anna is a flawed human, regardless of gender, who deserved more punishment than she received just like most white collar criminals. She isn’t the feminist icon the show and podcast seem to want to cast her as. Or, at least, I don’t want my four daughters to see her as one! She scammed people and did nothing of value for society. The podcast was just a rehash of episodes with a few production tidbits presumably as fresh content. Side note: I can’t wait until vocal fry is just gone!
