    Just like a carpenter to have tools and a shop-vac in the living space. I thought I was the only one. Great episode Erica!

    I’m new to your show. And this totally got me. I had no idea that it was an act. Halfway through I had to pause and go tell my husband that I loved him.

    I seem to be in the minority in these comments, but I was pretty unhappy to have been tricked into believing this was a true story. I don’t understand why a typically nonfiction show would make an episode and portray it as true all along, only revealing at the end that it was not. It was a betrayal of the trust you’ve built with me as a listener. A seed of doubt has been planted for future episodes. Instead of just being able to immerse myself in the episode, I will be wondering if there’s a gotcha coming up.
