A different crime story- but powerful!

This podcast helps peel back the layers that cover the “other” victims- the family of the murderer. It takes us along the process as the daughter of a truly evil man deals with having his bliss run through her.

Very inspirational!

Not a traditional true crime story but...

This podcast is a story about past, present, and future. Truly moving and beautiful, this podcast explores the roots of trauma, all the way to its devastating effects on future generations. If you’re looking for something personal, deep, and moving, you’ll love this podcast. If you’re looking for a Serial, Bear Brook, or Cold, you won’t enjoy it as much. This podcast is in its own category, and I appreciate the unique narrative being told through this medium.

JenHT Must Listen!

The first episode shows such great promise. The host is not afraid to go all in on what must be such a challenging and scary journey. Can’t wait for the next episode- I’m already hooked!
