My gosh, I cannot stand Meredith. She is just as arrogant and wrong for indulging in this affair as Jennair's husband, and hearing her whine about it on the recording just proves how self-entitled she believed she was.

Mark 'you are not trustworthy'. ah sir. She's batshit crazy true enough but she wasn't the one who broke the marriage vows. That's all you Mark. And you holding crumbs of info over her. She's broken. Irrational. But you Mark were cruel.

Pod would have been better and more suspenseful if they didn't reveal the ending in the first few minutes of the first episode.

Why does the host never ask Mark why he kept lying to Jennair about his affair. She knew what was up and was BEGGING him to tell her the truth!!!

This guy is such a douchebag, I mean duh. What he did with dragging everything on and on, so gross, such a pussy, Jennair was right. Even when he talks to Meredith he isn't there for her, he just has no emotion and is so bland. Why did these dynamic women fall for such a boring waste of time? So sad, 2 women dead over an emotionally retarded man.

I find this podcast interesting but was a bit frustrated with the lack of nuance in Eisode 5 that the behavioral specialist showed in saying Jennair was focused on justice (can't recall the specialist's name or creencials), while Jennair used the word justice all the time, she was clearly not focused on justice nor getting he truth as she had the truth toward the end She wanted vengeance, and was laser focused on that. It just seems quite a large oversight to not have included this in the discussion.

Wonder which charity ended up with profits from his 'tell all' book? "Let me be clear. ABC News doesn’t pay for interviews and any profits from the book will be donated to a charitable cause we believed in.” Hope it's true......

What a douche. He led his wife on. He took vowels to be married to her. She was his family. He drove her to commit murder. I feel bad for Genair.

I understand that there are going to be 2 camps here. Mark's (and therefore Meredith's too) vs Jennair's side. I'm with Jennair. Mark gaslit her. She went fucking crazy. I totally see why she did it

I'm sorry but I think the biggest tragedy was for Mark Giradot to have stayed in a marriage so long with such a disturbed and needy person. I can certainly emphasize her distraught over the infidelity and the unconscious yet dangerous gaslighting her husband did to her, He needed to come forward and be a Man and let her know what was up. But I gathered from this pod he was sort of afraid of her reaction and wanted to avoid confrontation but when someone is as clingy and needy a Jennair was you can't try to appease them..they will never reason. I know Mark will have to carry this guilt for the part he played in all this but Jennair Giradot's actions towards the end were very evil and calculated, lets not just brush it all under the rug of her being mentally distraught. This woman appeared to have been very selfish and conniving. Hope this tragic story serves as a cautionary tale to both men and women that no love can big bigger than ur own self love and honesty.
