Interesting stories but

The episodes could be better edited. The stories are told by people talking in their natural voices but that means there is lots of repetition, redundancy, and information that is superfluous. I find myself fast forwarding but not really missing much.

Good podcast but horrible audio

I like the stories and the plot moves decently but the audio is hard to listen to and can be so scratchy it hurts my ears

Dimples458 ,

Fascinating

A bit voyeuristic, to be sure, but such cautionary tales from amazingly strong women. Thanks to all for sharing your experiences and maybe even helping others identify worrisome behaviors!!
