  • I stumbled upon this…

    I remember hearing about this story when it first broke, and I did learn more new things from this free podcast on Apple. I’m so glad they came back with new info after they thought it was the closing episode to the series. The new information is like the cherry on top. True crime has always caught my attention.

  • Not any religion

    Cults interest me, I thought this would be fascinating. It was not. This was a very high level look, missing big topics and talking too much on unimportant ones. I found myself googling several topics that were eluded to but never explained. I found another podcast that gave me a MUCH better explanation and they did it in 2 hours.

  • This podcast could have been one or two episodes shorter, but it did a good job of looking past the sensational headlines and trying to figure out why someone like Ruby Franke could fall into the well of crazy that she was in. I feel like I learned a lot about a story that I had heard of but I didn't know much about.
