Exclusive Interview with Asia McClean
For those of you who are huge fans of the podcast, Serial, you know the name Asia McClean. She's one of the high school classmates of Adnan Syed, the subject of Serial. In one of the rarest piece of bonus content on the Lady Pates, Asia speaks with Patrick and Gillian over video, sharing how for years, she was unaware that she held the crucial key to Adnan Syed's alibi.
Our listeners love when Gillian hates things. And she hated The Staircase. In this Patreon exclusive series, Gillian takes one for the podcast with Patrick and breaks down this beloved true crime docuseries that covers the murder of Kathleen Peterson by husband Michael Peterson... or is it the accidental death of Kathleen Peterson? And what the hell does an owl have to do with any of this?!
Monthly Surprise: "Am I the A**hole?"
Ever wondered if you handled a situation correctly? Even better, have you ever wanted PH and GP to weigh in with their opinions? One of our favorite Hero Bell Patreon exclusives –when the duo answered questions posed in the infamous Reddit thread, "Am I the a**hole?" Members of the Obsessed Network team picked the prompts, and Patrick and Gillian had to react – as our team members reenacted them. Prompts include: a sushi buffet bait-and-switch, a graduation cake gone wrong, a pissed off coworker giving the cold shoulder, and way more tomfoolery.
"Okay, bye bye!" YOU GUYS. The Jinx, HBO documentary miniseries about the murders by mega millionaire Robert Durst, is wildly disturbing.
