    Thank you as always David Ridgen for your honest journalism. And for reminding listeners of the savage lengths so-called Pro-lifers are willing to go to achieve their ends.

    I’m so interested in this story. The podcast just felt overproduced. It was evasive at times. The interviews seem very specifically edited. I do so hope that they will find answers for Adrien.
