  • Attorney- client privilege

    This was a very interesting, informative and well done podcast. One question: in my opinion Maria‘s lawyer Bob Driscoll clearly violated an ethical rule by telling Celia what Maria, his client, told him during their relationship. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

  • I'd always wanted to know more about this mysterious woman. She's still a mystery, of course, but the podcast is well done and a good listen.

  • One of my favorite podcasts ever!

    I loved listening to this story and I hope more are made describing fascinating, deceptive, intriguing and powerful female characters like Maria.

  • Eh

    It’s kind of interesting, but not captivating. The story gets boring, so you realize you could miss episodes and not notice. I would say one of the worse wondery podcasts.

  • Left liberal leaning

    Great production and very entertaining. There is a common “left” leaning with many of the Wondery podcasts. This one stood out for me simply because of the current information we have regarding the time frame of the story. more
