    Introducing In God We Lust

    A woman named Becki is lounging by the pool at the Fontainebleau Hotel when she decides to proposition a strapping pool attendant. Go on a date with her...and her husband. What begins as an unconventional proposition will soon throw them all into the international spotlight.

Wondery presents In God We Lust, hosted by Brooke Siffrin and Aricia Skidmore-Williams of Even the Rich. A story of an alluring sex scandal, power, money and a very public fall from grace. When word of their affair fell into the wrong hands it led to political extortion and a public outing that brought Jerry Falwell Jr.’s empire crashing down. Listen at wondery.fm/IGWL_TrueCrimeBS

Absolutely Top Quality Content

I resisted listening to this podcast for the longest time because I never had any interest in learning anything about Israel Keyes. After hearing about it for the hundredth time, I caved and gave it a whirl. All I can say is: WOW. This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard in my life. Easily in the top three, and I am a true crime podcast fanatic. Host Josh Hallmark takes the deepest dive into the life and crimes of Israel Keyes. Every episode is better than the last. The amount of research and dedication to the show shines through. I’m almost dreading listening to anything else after I binge this, because it’s going to be so flat and incomplete by comparison. The bar has been set so high, and I’m so glad I finally gave it a listen.

Ignore Negative Comments This is Great Deep Dive into Keyes

I recently began first season again. The facts as discovered by Josh and Team make Season 1 much more meaningful. I like Josh’s voice, and it is not monotone, if anything it relates a tightly written scene ending in a mind blowing fact. Ie recently “red dirt” . The FBI stopped most investigation after IK committed suicide. This podcast begins to dive deep into Keyes live interviews parsing the nuances. From this it’s likely Many more victims have been identified. You need to listen closely. The music is fabulous, I agree Josh needs to moderate the sound level downward for all sponsors this is a distraction and is a new issue in this season

Better than ambien

The podcast really redeems itself with the last several episodes. One of my all time favs. Frequently fascinating and often nuanced. Love the podcast, love the music.
