The Truth Squad has spoken! Many listeners have written in to say that we have not given this season a fair shot and have been complaining too much about the characters while not paying close attention to the details of the unraveling mystery. We take quite a bit of time (~40 minutes off the top) to go through listener feedback including hints and tips about easter eggs and hypothesis that listeners have found. The last half of this very long show is business as usual!

This episode had us so flustered that I couldn't even remember the name of our podcast (note the use of Truth and True interchangeably, haha)! The cinematography was absolutely incredible, and the plot took turns that honestly have our theories completely up in the air. The only thing that is certain is that Hart's family is over it (well, at least temporarily) and Chole's past is coming back to haunt him in a very real way. Please join us for this nail biting, insanely great episode, "Who...
