Couldn’t stop listening!

I lost sleep listening - I didn’t want to pause even for a moment. Riveting and upsetting to learn about this story.

Fascinating and Appalling

This was a riviting podcast. I found myself wondering how if there are really people like this in the world, and by the end, there was no denying it.
