This sounds like a bunch of racism and sexism accusations about random people without any evidence or proof. There is no way to verify these flippant claims without looking up every little thing, and it is not like Parcast is a trustworthy journalist organization. Not interested to continue listening.

I find it disturbing that Clark gable was presented here as a killer but with absolutely no proof?! Snopes has a wonderful article on the research they did to find out if that story is real and there are zero confirmations. it seems the legiticmacy of the claim is in question and that should have been mentioned.

Gypsy Rose is also the name of the girl who was abused by her mother and is in prison for her death. Maybe her mom read the book!

Why do all of the comments say that the episode gets cut off. I heard the entire thing just fine, all the way to the end credits and the see you next week thing. Maybe it’s bc I downloaded the episode ? Did you guys that had it cut off download it or stream it? I have never had any episodes of any show cut off before the end. But I download all the ones I listen to, not sure if that has anything to do with it.
