The Apology Line
Play • 7 min

If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series. Listen today at http://wondery.fm/AL_MysteryandMurder

Murder Mayhem and Meth: The Real Breaking Bad In Texas | E2
As we work on future episodes about notorious prison breaks in Texas and violent crazy cults, I want to share an episode from our sister podcast Justice Facts. My cohost is Bill Johnston who is featured in Season 1 of my True Crime Reporter™ podcast called Free to Kill.  Johnston then a federal prosecutor launched the manhunt for serial killer Kenneth McDuff. A television show based on the podcast is currently in development. If you have not listened to the 17-episode series, I strongly recommend that you subscribe to Season 1 - Episode 1 to hear about the worst serial killer in Texas history. He is worse than Ted Bundy! Johnston and I reconnected as a result of that series and started the Justice Facts podcast together. The true crime cases from our careers are stranger than fiction. In this episode from our Justice Facts Podcast, we start with the notorious meth cook that Texas Narcotics Agents called “Mr. Z”. Talk among informants was that “Mr. Z” was the man. The big shot. The kingpin of methamphetamine operations in North and East Texas. Mr. Z. provided the formula, know-how, and muscle for meth labs across a wide swath of the state in the early 1980s. He was a true-life version of Walt in Breaking Bad. But possessed by extreme paranoia that stockpiled an arsenal of stolen military weapons. It’s a case of Murder, Mayhem, and Methamphetamines. P.S. We want to become your favorite True Crime Podcast. In order to do so, we need your review on Apple.
