Interesting but...

I don’t dislike it, in fact I find myself waiting for when they play Marilyn’s voice. The repetition of quotes and introductions of people, breaks it down to about 15 minutes of new information in each other episode. Which is annoying, but I love Marilyn, so I’m going to keep listening.

Nope.

I couldn’t even get through episode one. Because: Haven’t you folks ever heard of a little something called “accidental death - drug involved”? Just because this manner of death didn’t make it onto coroner’s reports until the 80s, more or less, it doesn’t mean that nobody died of that before then.

Uneducated Marilyn fan

I’ve always been a fan and love Marilyn. I’ll admit I am not very well educated about her life but knew the basics and “conspiracy” theories of her death. So I learned some new details. I’m not done with the podcast but this story is heartbreaking. I find this telling to be fairly misogynistic and victim blaming but I guess that mirrors Marilyn’s life and ultimate death. RIP Marilyn Monroe.
