She was a victim until the police reports came out. After that, she was a volunteer.

I don't know whether to think she's dumb, or feel bad for her bc she's obviously so lonely. But one thing for sure... her mother is a piece of shit!!

Why are so many people on here judging this poor woman? She is like the women who are abused but dont press charges etc...Debbie needs support, not mean rude comments. Just saying.

I see that so many people here are quick to blame the victim in this situation. It's always easier to see abuse from the outside looking in, but when you're actually IN the relationship, it is SO much more difficult to see the wool being pulled over your eyes. This man manipulated Debbie, he figured out how to exploit her emotions to the point where she questioned everything about herself, and her family's intentions. We can see how horrible John is because he's not manipulating us. Let's not forget who the victim is here. Debbie certainly does not need to be berated, she needed help seeing John for who he is.

The more episodes and the deeper into an episode the more I bug my eyes out, shake my head and drop my jaw. This lady is beyond naive and has no self respect or a motherly instinct!!!

It seems to me that John knew her buttons. He didn't have to hit her. He used her emotions against her. He isolated her like most abusive people do. He made it so he was her only lifeline. The guy was a genius at mind games.

I'm so happy that as a human with thumbs and fingers I am able to have the ability to stop a podcast that is playing inadvertently. #firstworldproblems thank you castbox for giving us amazing material for free. so glad I found you!!

I don't appreciate that Dirty John started playing automatically after the Ben Shapiro Show. No interest in that at all. The one bit I heard was something about sending nude pics to a girl.
