    Rebecca met Sarah Koenig!! She fills us in on that awkward encounter. What's the latest with Serial season two subject Bowe Bergdahl? Seems he's made some kind of deal with the government. We invite back retired USMC Lt Col James Weirick of the Military Justice podcast to explain why he thinks some of the early media reports are wrong and what a plea for a lighter sentence might look like. Then the panel digs into the new hit podcast from the LA Times, Dirty John. TO SKIP PAST THE SPOILERS AND JUST HEAR OUR REVIEW, GO TO TIME CODE: 1:03:25 This six-part true crime profile looks at grifter John Meehan and the trouble he wreaked on Debra Newell and her family. Judging by your Twitter and Facebook questions, you seemed just as amazed by Debra's willingness to forgive the gold digger as you are in Dirty John's evil designs.
