Reviews
I just want to point out that this podcast doesn’t have actors - these are the real people talking. So much for all these 1 star reviews about the voice of the daughters...

Listening to this podcast honestly gave me anxiety over the horrible decisions Debra made. She only cared about her kids well being after the fact, even though they had told her he was a bad guy. She may be a smart business woman, but she has no common sense. She put her kids lives in danger and...Read full review »

Amazing story with an insane ending!!!

Good podcast.
AshLaChelle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/19
Seriously, think about it. I can just hear John calling all the allegations against him a witch hunt. Scared the s**t out of me.

I can't wait to hear where this shady shrink is today. This Story is Nuts!!! Please hurry with episode 3. Asking my friends to get on board and listen to what is happening in the Big Bad world.

This is honestly a great story but like most complaints on the reviews for this podcast is that the voices of the daughters are extremely annoying. Debra also laughing so much as she is talking about John seems like she really was ok with everything that happened. Lastly the story could have been...Read full review »

Scary as hell! Loved the story. Well told and post interview was excellent
SofSof72 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/19
Riveting! And loved the women - especially Jacqueline and Tara.

Great podcast but the valley girl voices from the daughters were very distracting and did not make them sound intelligent or believable.
Popsie & Erica via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
I love true murder/crime podcast series. Very well written, produced and the story flows beautifully!
Aarius Yaites via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
I did not care for this podcast at all. I found it very boring. Could hardly get through Chapter 1 as the younger daughter voice is very annoying and she has very little to contribute. I also found the other daughter to be a bit arrogant speaking of how she had worked around Physicians and she...Read full review »

So I am reading the reviews, you guys are disgusting. This is a story about a lady’s troubles and you have to be so aggressive? I may be only 15 but I know not to give people poo about what happened in their life, you are full grown adults and are criticising a women for HER choices which impact...Read full review »

😮 WOW JUST WOW 😮 ADDICTIVE The show is out too, I’ll be watching this weekend.

You will feel so involved in this story and just wishing and hoping for a happy ending. Beautifully done.
Allie Taylor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/19
I’m with the other listeners. This mother should be ashamed of herself. What a story though!
H2Oalltheway via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/19
I’ve watched both the documentary of John and the Netflix miniseries of John and they both were better than this podcast. This podcast was slow and had a monotone voice telling the story. Didn’t captivate me at all.
MeaghanDueck via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/19
I listened to the whole painful thing, but oh my gosh! So irritating. First of all, red flags galore that should’ve prevented this whole fiasco from ever happening. Victim blaming is horrible, but at the same time a little bit of common sense is kind of good. Debra was selfish and stupid, and...Read full review »

Great story! Now, please give us the, “updates.” How was the relationship with daughters, after the tragedy. What was the reaction with John’s family. What’s the mom up to, of late and the dear mother to Debbie.
OkpuUgo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
The woman in this story is so stupid I found the podcast difficult to listen to. She wasn’t a victim, her daughter was. She was a willing participant over and over and over, putting her children at risk. Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
mama6 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/19
I really enjoyed this podcast and story. Thanks for producing this.
mimi5molly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/19
What I liked was how the writer went into Debra Newell’s background which helps us understand why in the world she was so trusting of John and kept forgiving him. Once you listened to the interview with Debra’s mother, it becomes more clear. Very well done in going into depth in that way.
Aunt KoKo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/01/19
Great story but it took way too many chapters to tell. This was an episode of Dateline and while they skipped much of the back story they managed to sum it up in 60 mins. I think 4 episodes would have been enough. The back story of her family is really interesting and explains much of her...Read full review »

Tara has the most annoying voice ever!!! And these women are ridiculously annoying.
Jillianrc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/19
This was a good story but it took a really long time to get to the point. There could have been half as many episodes to reach the climax and then focused some episodes on the aftermath.
ChickenLittle34 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/19
Great podcast
drea718 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/19
Great podcast! Crazy story. Frustrating people. Nasty, evil villain. Listen!
JulzTravels via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/19
Although I love the podcast, the mother should be BE-YOND ashamed of herself. She is responsible for the whole calamity. He wasn’t a good con. SHE was desperate. Self absorbed, silly, childish, he list goes on and on and on. You are PAYING A LAWYER to help this weirdo relate to your kids?! She...Read full review »

Great story of survival. Well-told.
LizCruiser21 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/19
It’s predictable but entertaining. I like the voice of the narrator. I felt as if there are too many adds but at the same time I get that they need sponsors to afford to continue. Still a lot tho. Worth a listen!
eastccowboy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/19
This pod started off strong and was very interesting but as the episodes went on, the story starts repeating and the story and interviews drag on. The interviews need to be cut and summed up by the host. It’s like they just posted entire interviews without editing. The drawl of the interviewees...Read full review »

This woman is weak desperate and pathetic. I can’t stand either of them.
K-Sulli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/19
Holds your attention throughout the whole story! Excellent. Well done. True crime.
ralphiemom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/19
Very compelling story! What was the significance of Terra’s rain boots in the last episode? I must have missed something.
AMS skip it via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/19
I listen to podcasts while walking my dog...the month I discovered this one I clocked 260 kms! Disturbing story and well told.
jillyjugs via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/18/19
This story was interesting. I had a hard time following the series, for some reason I couldn't really follow the person. Other than losing my attention from time to time, the story is great and the podcast was good.
navi_15 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/19
I listened to this after watching the series and the documentary but it was still interesting. I would highly recommend it and you don’t necessary have to have watched the series or documentary before. The story is put together beautifully.
Lawzym via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/19
My wife wanted to hear this on a road trip... in the end even she was annoyed. The whole story is predictable and not very unique. We painstakingly listened to the whole thing. The story could have been told in as little as 1 hour - repetition is abundant.
jonnycash1243 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/19
Too much filler and repetition . Had to power thru the last few episode and it detached me from the story . Some rambling interviews that could have been edited . Also felt it jumps around way too much . But this may have been to my deteriorating interest .
Jimmyjames1108 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/19
First and one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to I hate the fact that it was true but maybe that’s why it intrigued me! Very compelling. If it wasn’t for this podcast I would have never moved on to listened to more and more true crime podcasts Thanks for sharing! If you...Read full review »

When my daughter was a teenager, I made her a gag gift for Christmas. It was based on an inside joke. We had a tradition that both kids could open one gift on Christmas Eve. Well, I made sure that the gag gift was beautifully wrapped & arranged just so beneath the tree. Of course, she chose...Read full review »

I just started listening to podcasts and was struggling trying to find good podcasts with great narration and this is just perfect! It explains the story line well and gives you different perspectives and the narrator doesn’t go off topic like most crime podcasts do.
KathyyyRamos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/19
There was a lot of hype so I was excited to listen to it but in all reality I was underwhelmed. I have tried some of the other shows from this network and am enjoying them. I would recommend the others from this network before this one.
AAustinKY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/19
Story is uninteresting and follows no clear line of reasoning. You know where the end is from the very beginning, and they lead you there so agonizingly slowly I just stopped listening. And to top it off the main women who talk during about what happened to them have annoying voices and take...Read full review »

I was driving from Northern California to Southern California and listened to this podcast all in one go. I couldn’t stop listening and was engaged with each episode, I had to know what was next! It’s a great listen.
Olivia Rene via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/19
I am a new podcast listener and I have to say that I am a fan. The narration kept me engaged from the moment I clicked pay on my device. I love true crime stories and this is a great way to stay informed.
Maggie May C via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/19
Listened on a work road trip and it helped the time fly by! Finished the last two episodes in my hotel room. Extremely well done!
Nanc51 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/19
Essential listening, particularly for women. I binge listened, it was so good. This type of man who preys on women, gaslights constantly, psychologically abuses with constant lies are in most womens' history somewhere (and one is sadly US President!) Fascinating psychological study of both...Read full review »

Such a creepy story. It really goes to show how love can be blind. A lesson in trusting the instincts of people close to you!
