Description

Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore and Michael Richland lose their parents unexpectedly in a small plane crash, they must choose between honoring their father’s legacy as a world-renowned cardiologist and health care magnate — or risk it all to tell the truth. In the second season, they must grapple with the consequences of their decisions, as well as stumble upon disturbing new revelations about the family business. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John” and “Dr. Death,” Blood Ties stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Josh Gad (Frozen, Avenue 5), Amy Landecker (Transparent), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), and Wayne Knight. New episodes of the second season release every Wednesday.

Even the Catholic church was convinced this was a case of demonic possession.On the new podcast, The Devil Within, the truth of the grisly murder is finally revealed. Did Tommy act alone? Did he really commit suicide? Is his cult still in power? The Devil Within finally sheds light on questions left unanswered for decades...Listen Here: wondery.fm/TheDevilWithin

it's only ignorant Americans with zero attention spans who's brains have rotted from too many reality shows that are oblivious to existence of audio dramas .BBC radio airs them all the time ( with talented big name actors and acclaimed famous writers)

OMG.... what a disappointing letdown of an ending!!! There are SOOOO many ways they could have taken this. I kept looking and looking at the timer remaining from the last episode, thinking 'Now's the twist... here comes the twist ending...' but NOTHING!!! I feel like I just wasted two seasons and 12 episodes on a letdown.

Season 2 was an amazing end to this well-done series. Excellent acting and sound design. This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts out there and I recommend it anyone who needs a sharp, well-written story to get them through these crazy times.
