Great

Great. I know ads are unavoidable. Them existing is not my point. The ones featuring Hoda and Jenna are obnoxious as all get out. Neither one of those ladies have podcast friendly voices.

Don’t want to make space for woke gods

Leave the woksters out of the crime drama.

Great story, terrible ending

The story is so well told with enough details to have us imagine what was seen by the victims and guilty. This is one of those stories where not only do we have innocent and guilty but one is both. The monster in this story manipulates a man-boy and knows exactly how to get him to do what she needs him to in order to live a life without working hard again. Jaime in this situation is the classic case of what happens when a child doesn’t have his mother’s love and searches his whole life for it, only to find a user and abuser who leaves a trail of victims in her path. Keith does his research and views the scene photos himself, asks the victims and guilty questions to get more info for us and asks the right ones. He tells stories like a story book but without the fluff from fairytales. His sarcasm is noted and adds to the tone. I hope Ron’s girls heal over time and Jaime finds help through therapy. Both saw how wonderful Ron was and his legacy left.
