Good Story

I enjoyed the show not only because it was interesting but because I didn’t even know about this story and I live in Georgia. It was a bit anticlimactic but I hope new updates come out and some light is shed on the case because I do believe something fishy occurred and the show does a great job of introducing that theory

Overdone and uninteresting

Way to long a story for such little content with unneeded details. Needs a clear, concise summary b/c it is full of fluff and disjointed tangents.
Did not keep my interest
Use birth control people and plan realistically, and perhaps widen your experience before embarking on living a false script of.

Why does this podcast not match up with the evidence?

Why does Jessica in this say they can’t remove a bullet from her. Yet in every other interviews she has done and does she and the evidence say she was never shot? I loved this podcast and felt terrible for Jessica until I discovered this lie. So which is it?
