When successful West Coast interior designer Debra Newell found love late in life with smart, hunky John Meehan sparks flew — but it should have been red flags. 

She discovered everything about him was a lie. And then things got really bad. 

Dirty John is the anxiety-producing six-part series by Los Angeles Times journalist Christopher Goffard (a two-time Pulitzer finalist) that has been adapted into the latest podcast everyone you know is bingeing. (We have multiple obsessed staffers.) 

You can read the story online, but the audio version is re-imagined, richer and even more disturbing. Pro tip: If you're currently online dating, you may want to skip this one.  Details: latimes.com/dirtyjohn
