I listened to this based on others’ recommendations and I was enjoying it, but thinking it was a little long. Then I got to the last ten minutes and WOW, my mind is blown. In hindsight, it was definitely worth spending so much time on Mildred’s story and learning about her courage in the face of dom...Show More

this episode is so soooo good. the first part of 2 (eagerly waiting!!!) framed as a domestic terrorist case/ serial killer that doesn’t even get that much attention because the perpetrator is a black man in american.

@mm I'm so glad you guys all liked it! I listen to a lot lot of podcasts so I try to make my recommendations only the actual best ones I hear. Glad other people took to this one too

This episode was crazy! I grew up in DC and had no idea that this was a domestic abuse case! What a wild story.
@argentum Thanks for the recommendation in this! It was crazy! Do you remember much about the time when this happened? The scene they illustrated about how the parents were forming human walls to protect their kids during that time...
@mm I was very young and didn't understand exactly what was going on at the time. Most people were business as usual. There were people who behaved more dramatically but they were not the majority.
@argentum Ah, they probably overemphasized the drama in this episode then. I remember going to DC by myself a few year ago and walking around at night a bit worried, because I heard about the gun violence in DC. I think I was in the NoMa area(?) where the that popular pie shop is and seeing a glass ...Show More
