  1. Listening to the show this week I saw a lot of parallels with Brook Lancaster’s story. My mother actually dated a con man in Memphis, TN who was from New Orleans and used to weld – my mother met him playing cards in Memphis around 2008. He was relocated to Memphis after Katrina and along a similar story line he randomly needed to move in within a month of living together. He then stole money from the job he was working and after a confrontation with my brother he disappeared off the face of the earth – assuming back to New Orleans. I can’t help but think my Ron might be her Newton, I really want to connect with her to see if I could connect these dots.

  2. WOW! Let’s connect for sure — I’d love to see if Ron and Newton are one and the same.

  3. Loved this episode!
    I came here looking for the song playing under “dead letter love” without any luck. I don’t even know if I will get an answer at this page, but I will try anyways because the song was magical.

    Kind regards from a regular listener in Norway!
