    Beyond All Repair Chapter 1: Boxes

    Beyond All Repair Chapter 1: Boxes

    Imagine if, one day, you are accused of something. Something horrible, violent, heinous. Something you swear you did not do, and nothing you say can convince anyone otherwise — even the people closest to you.
    That’s Sophia Johnson’s story.
    Sophia was starting fresh: A new life, a new husband, a baby on the way. But it all unraveled on January 10, 2002, when her mother-in-law Marlyne Johnson was found bludgeoned to death in her home. Days later, Sophia was charged with the murder. To this day, Sophia swears she didn’t do it. But someone says they witnessed it — her own brother.
    When family betrays family, who do you believe? In this story of a sibling rivalry beyond compare, WBUR’s Amory Sivertson turns the clock back. She reexamines an unsolved case, a family torn apart, and a woman who wasn’t believed.
    From WBUR and ZSP Media, this is Beyond All Repair and you're listening to Chapter 1: Boxes.

Review

Very interesting show. I very much enjoyed listening. Hope that it returns soon.

Title and author had a higher opinion of themselves then they delivered

I’m unsure why this popped up in my rotation, but it was 27 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.
There it was literally a half hour infomercial for “exciting story coming next episode”
You know what? I already gave you 27 minutes.
Also, the reporter (did not catch her name, voice was non-distinct.)kept telling the viewer how great they were, and only they could have gotten this information…
Without giving us any information.
Show, don’t tell.
