116: Oxygen's Dirty John: The Dirty Truth
We are covering this documentary in two episodes. Episode 2 is available right now and ad-free at the $5 level on Patreon. You can get it here. It will be our regular episode (with ads) next week.
When Debra Newell met John Meehan on dating site for the 50+ crowd, he seemed too good to be true. A handsome, fit, successful doctor? She was interested. But, beginning with their first date, there were warning signs...something wasn't quite right here. But she ignored her instincts and allowed him to move quickly. He moved in with her after a few weeks and convince her to marry him after just two months. All the while, her adult children begged her to pay attention to the red flags, lies, and abusive behavior.
In Part 1, we learn about Debra and John's whirlwind romance, see how he groomed her, and meet several other women he victimized and terrorized over the years.
