Wondery Presents: 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.

In 1997, the small city of Pelham, Alabama was shocked by the brutal quadruple murder of a family. The victims, Randy Duke and Dedra Hunt were engaged to be married, and Dedra’s six year old daughter, Chelisa, and seven year daughter, Chelsea spent their weekends with the couple. Police at first thought it was a triple murder/suicide but soon learned it was an even more senseless and horrific crime.
