Complete waste of time

I don’t know why I didn’t just quit listening. It was such a waste of time! Some of the memories shared were poignant, but the focus of the father’s secret was a waste. You will guess the big secret by episode 2 or 3. She should have focused on her MOTHER! Her story & life was much interesting & enlightening as an example of what a woman, wife & mother endured in that time period. The music is creepy & annoying. I honestly am quite angry with myself for finishing this.
