I’m gonna give it a couple more listens

I hope that the host takes the feedback from these comments and amps her game up. The first episode was a mess and there was nothing in it that the general population didn’t already know. Disappointing for sure. However, I’ll be listening again to give it one more chance

About time the truth comes out

Americans seem to still see JFK as an innocent schoolboy which he was not even close to being. He could not afford to have his dirty secrets aired. It’s a shame that the people around Marilyn who knew the truth were to cowardly to speak up. So the 5 stars are for exploring, revealing and most importantly caring about how Norma Jean actually died.

Dreadful Narration

The narrator sounds like a naive 6th grade child with no understanding of the material that she is clearly reading from a poorly written script. The 15 minutes that I forced myself to listen to revealed nothing that hasn’t been discussed ad nauseum for years. This woman hosts a TV show??? Must be Romper Room!
