Emily + Brian

Listen in app
Emily and Brian, like many couples, have had both ups and downs during their relationship. About a week before their third wedding anniversary, Emily gets the sense that things are down again.

It’s just a feeling. Nothing concrete. No proof of anything. But when Brian dies in a tragic accident a few days later, Emily learns that her husband has been having relationships with people who are … not Emily.

This is an episode about multiple truths — about how you can love someone and grieve their death and also feel intense betrayal.
