    Nancy Brophy fills her novels with romantic betrayals and murder. It’s a far cry from her quiet life in the suburbs, where she and her chef husband, Dan, are living out their golden years. But when Dan is shot dead, Nancy finds herself at the center of a murder case that could be ripped from the pages of her novels.

Best podcast out there. Period.

I first started listening to this podcast on long drives to take my teenage son to school 2 years ago and have been absolutely hooked since. I recommend it to everyone asking about a podcast. It’s the one podcast we can truly all enjoy together. I have several favorites that my sons and I replay but I just finished the Jeremy Renner episode and it is *phenomenal*. I hope this podcast never ends. It’s the perfect mix of serious and unserious and I wish every episode was 2 hours or longer.

John Goodman interview

That was the best interview y’all have ever done. All of you asked great questions and were engaged the entire time. John is great actor and an engaging conversationalist.

A weekly must listen to!

I’ve been listening since episode one and these guys are the bomb! The dynamics they have with one another and the mutual respect and love come through on every podcast. It’s like sitting with a bunch of friends and listening to amazing stories over and over again. I’ve learned so much about the entertainment world and since I have another generation going into that business, it’s been highly educational for me to, be able to hear firsthand stories from the host and their guests about the difficulties and challenges of being in entertainment. Thanks for the education and the entertainment gentlemen! Let me know when you guys all want to go to a Rams game together!
