I am so glad others have posted their opinions on this episode. I too think Rita is lying. There is something so inherently disingenuous about the way she speaks and acts... And that nipple ring situation just cemented it.

This is the most compelling and heartbreaking podcast I've listened to. The storytelling is as engaging as the protagonist. Much like "Brokeback Mountain," I am in love with the story and the characters equally, but may never be able to listen, again. I am deeply moved. Thank you.

my heart was so full when he was told about how John helped Tyler and sacrificed his body and beliefs for the shop. Rest In Paradise Sir.

I would have lived to have met John! It’s so interesting how we don’t realize how special people are until there gone. Very sad 😔

I found this a worthwhile podcast. Worthwhile. A word used and defined in the story. A word to ponder. This podcast was thought provoking for me. Am I doing all I can do? I loved this podcast as I have no other I've listened to. It did, however, leave me with a lingering sadness. A sadness for John B and others in my life who were gone too soon.
