Congratulations to everyone in these comments on never having been the victim of coercive control! Here’s hoping you never end up with a guy like John, who is, you seem to have forgotten, the actual villain.

Gee, I guess it is no surprise where Debra gets her extremely bad judgement in affairs of the heart. The grandmother treats the murderer of her child like he just made a minor mistake. She tells John she loves him. So it is not surprising her daughter has 5 marriages under her belt and takes back John and is alienated from her children. I can judge because I chose my children over a narcissist. Your kids are SO much more important than any man should ever be.

As someone who just recently began listening to podcasts, I was skeptical to begin this crime/murder podcast, but my sister-in-law insisted me to listen, as it is her favorite podcast. Immediately, I was intrigued as the narrator did not offer much of an introduction but instead established a disclaimer to the amount of profanity and disturbing descriptions; This drew me in to ask: how bad this crime could really be? Within the first three minutes of the first episode, there was scattered information regarding the case and all the grewsome details but what really caught my ear was when the narrator said, the “she fought like hell” but the context was not clear which left me wanting more; After this, the case began in chronological order. The narrator began by describing the area and vibe of Orange County and New Port Beach and then specifically Dirty John and all the women involved. The scene was set as two adults looking for love online. It was the classic story: the “perfect boyfriend” and a vulnerable woman with no self-confidence. Now, I don’t want to spoil the podcast too much, but he was definitely not the perfect boyfriend, but he would be gone soon enough. If I were to ask a question to anyone involved, it would be Debra, John’s wife. I would ask: When was the moment you knew that John was not a good man or the man he said to be? This question is interesting to me since the woman missed many signs that her boyfriend/husband was dangerous and manipulative. It was almost irritating how naïve Debra was. Also, if I were to change anything about the podcast, I would want it to made clear who was killed in the beginning of the podcast because some parts got foggy as the narrative continued, and less ads! If you’ve made it this far, you should definitely listen if you are interested in crime or murder. I have only listened to three episodes thus far, but I can't wait to finish it! Also - I will never forget the chills I got on my body when the narrator said, “the young woman fought like hell”. Listen for it. Anonymous

I'm sorry that no one could use his organs, but, honestly, no one that knew about him would want a piece of him in their bodies. I sure would not.

Poor Terra. Her mother has failed her so many times. Didn't call the police when someone tried to snatch her at 5 years old?! WTHeck? Did she not think that person might try to come back or snatch up another kid? Selfish. I just cannot comprehend.

This woman...she has no boundaries, no self respect. Knowing what Deb's mother did for the man that killed her daughter tells me everything I need to know about why Deb is the way she is. SMH.

the daughter's explanation for scrubs is ridiculous. Ive worked for many hospitals, and yes many people will wear their scrubs the way dirtyD did.
