Laura, Jim and Lisa are joined by special guest Jenny Popplewell, the Director of the #1 Netflix show American Murder: The Family Next Door.

Jenny takes us behind the scenes and explains why this case spoke to her as well as the gender bias in the media on reporting on domestic violence murders and familicides.

Laura asks Jenny about the time Shanann spent with her family in North Carolina and Jenny reveals what it was like when Chris eventually joined her for the week. You won't want to miss this.

Warning: This is an extremely upsetting watch and case and this series is a tough listen.

Our thoughts are with Shanann's, Bella and Celeste's family and friends.
