I wish someone had told me that this podcast would be full of Suicide ideation, depression, angst, mental illness, and would drown me in my own issues by association.

Binged all 7 chapters of this most affecting human drama. I felt terrible at the end. Depressing, heart shattering, engrossing and expertly told. Revisiting this review a year later to say it holds up as the best podcast I’ve ever listened to.

Very well done podcast.

Best podcast that I have listen to in a very long time! You won’t regret downloading this I had no idea this went on 45 minutes from where I live.
