When Jennair Gerardot suspects her husband, Mark, is having an affair with his dynamic and beautiful boss, Jennair begins secretly recording the new lovers. When Mark’s lies and deceit become too much to bear, Jennair begins recording herself as well, and then… she writes a suicide letter outlining a monstrous plan for vengeance. This cautionary tale is told through Jennair’s actual recordings, and with insight from esteemed clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula, who helps unravel this true story of what can happen when powerful emotions like desire, betrayal and revenge take root in someone’s soul. Hosted and reported by Barbara Schroeder, writer/director of Netflix’s “Evil Genius.” Launching June 30.
Jennair’s acts of violence shock the world, but when her husband tells his side of the story- on national TV and in a book - backlash ensues, creating a whole new drama and great curiosity about the undisclosed confessional materials Jennair left behind.
The Gerardot’s love story began with the “Three Things” everyone needs in order to be happy in life. But not everybody is convinced this union is a love match. And decades later, this “perfect” marriage will crumble as temptation sets in.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the podcast episode titled "Bad Bad Thing: The Blackstone Sisters." The storytelling and production quality were exceptional, making it a gripping and immersive experience. The episode brilliantly delved into the intriguing lives of the Blackstone Sisters, providing a fascinating blend of history, mystery, and drama. http://www.greenvillecityguide.com/brooklyn-ny/local-services/kraft-paper-studio The hosts did a commendable job in their research, uncovering the captivating and often enigmatic stories surrounding these sisters. The way they navigated through the intricacies of their lives and the events that surrounded them was not only informative but also emotionally engaging. https://www.fixerhub.com/new-york/brooklyn/professional-service/kraft-paper-studio

This woman was completely neurotic. She was not narcissistic. Yes, maybe Mark should have been more curt about what he wanted, but he shouldn’t be blamed for how insane this woman was.. and Meredith knew he was married. She could have walked away, easily. She knew what Jenair was capable of but she didn’t care, she pursued Mark just as much as he pursued her. I think Meredith fed off the drama. All 3 were culpable in the endgame.

This reporter is weird. It doesn't matter if someone talks willingly. The cops are required to read their rights if they've been arrested. That's what makes it so simple. Read people's rights upon arrest, period.

What a crazy lady ,so much effort to stalk with tracking and listening devices. She wanted to know control and know everything. They where getting a divorce why couldn't she leave him alone. If Mark stalked and murdered his ex wife's lover the conversation would be so different.

This guy is the total ass. He wants Meredith but refuses to give up his marriage in case it doesn't work out. He refuses to let his wife move on by playing games with her emotions, classic narcissist.

My gosh, I cannot stand Meredith. She is just as arrogant and wrong for indulging in this affair as Jennair's husband, and hearing her whine about it on the recording just proves how self-entitled she believed she was.

Mark 'you are not trustworthy'. ah sir. She's batshit crazy true enough but she wasn't the one who broke the marriage vows. That's all you Mark. And you holding crumbs of info over her. She's broken. Irrational. But you Mark were cruel.

Pod would have been better and more suspenseful if they didn't reveal the ending in the first few minutes of the first episode.

Why does the host never ask Mark why he kept lying to Jennair about his affair. She knew what was up and was BEGGING him to tell her the truth!!!

I find this podcast interesting but was a bit frustrated with the lack of nuance in Eisode 5 that the behavioral specialist showed in saying Jennair was focused on justice (can't recall the specialist's name or creencials), while Jennair used the word justice all the time, she was clearly not focused on justice nor getting he truth as she had the truth toward the end She wanted vengeance, and was laser focused on that. It just seems quite a large oversight to not have included this in the discussion.

Wonder which charity ended up with profits from his 'tell all' book? "Let me be clear. ABC News doesn’t pay for interviews and any profits from the book will be donated to a charitable cause we believed in.” Hope it's true......

What a douche. He led his wife on. He took vowels to be married to her. She was his family. He drove her to commit murder. I feel bad for Genair.
