    Fantastic

    One of the most binge-worthy pods I’ve ever listened to. Great pace, without feeling rushed or dragged out. And I really enjoyed the way they presented each person in the story. Instead of each person being boringly predictable from the start, I found myself feeling one way fairly strongly... only to feel *very* differently as it all unfolded. An obvious example of this was with her daughters. In the first episode, I was like ‘what self-centered b**ches’. Then in the subsequent episode, I was like ‘ahh what great young women’.. hahaha Highly recommended.

    Engaging

    This was a great story; I wish there were more similar ones. It was well told, realistic, and by the end you are breathing a sigh of relief. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for the details & back story

    Just listened to this and found the extra details and background very intriquing--this included so much more information than what I originally heard/saw on Dateline or 20/20. Hard to believe that someone like John could be so evil and without any conscience. I tend to think that his early childhood and family life, particularly his father, played a major role in molding John's character, yet his sisters appear to be so real and the opposite of John. It makes one wonder what causes a person to go off the rails so differently than other family members.

    Crazy Story

    This was so nuts. I binged it in a single evening because I couldn’t believe how ridiculous it was. The good news is it’s short so you can listen to it quickly. I didn’t like the music though. And they repeated sections or exposition frequently. I didn’t understand the necessity. But it was still entertaining. Which is twisted because this really happened to a family.

    Gripping

    A cautionary tale that all women should listen to. My sister and I both listened and discussed it often. The youngest daughter’s voice can be irritating and I grew frustrated with Debra’s stemming impulsivity and brainless decisions.

    Phenomenal

    This is hands down the best podcast I’ve listened to. The writing, narration, interviews, everything is just pitch perfect.

    AMAZING. Hope they do a second season

    I love this story. It has THE BEST ending. Please do more seasons about other “dirty” creeps. I’m sure there are many many men and women out there like this.

    The story is the only thing driving this.

    The story is fascinating. Stranger than fiction. To know it was reality is what makes in so interesting. Everything else... less great. The reporter/ narrator had a voice that was difficult to get past and his emotion toward to the story was somewhat confusing. I read complaints about the daughters voices but it didn’t matter much to me. It sort of helps describe what they might be like. The worst of the worst was the music. From the intro music to the little random blurbs to help set a tone were painful to listen to.

    Captivated

    This is such an important story to share. I have seen the first 3 night show about it and then it was on a couple different channels with new series made by different Producers. It leaves me at the edge of my seat. It is good that this story is told. I think I like it so much because this could easily happen to any of us women or girls. It is very brave to share this with the public. It makes us more aware and more careful. I used to try match dot com and after seeing Dirty John, I feel like I was lucky this didn’t happen to me. I dodged a bullet. After seeing Dirty John, I believe it is not safe to meet people from the internet. I would not encourage any woman or girl to turn to the internet. I checked out Parlor. It’s a scary site because people talk to you and see you in real time. It’s scary. The domestic terrorists use that site to connect. Be safe and well everybody!

    WOW!

    Great podcast from the LA Times and wondery. After one I was hooked!! 😁I had to listen to it again because I missed some of the most important things the first time around. Also, I watched the TV version referenced in the bonus episode. I highly recommend it. Eric Bana is a great actor who does a fantastic job portraying the narcissistic John Meehan. The rest of the cast is also outstanding. Furthermore, if you just can’t get enough of Chris Goddard’s writing, check out his collection “Dirty John and Other True Stories of Outlaws and Outsiders.” There is plenty there to dig into.
