In the movie magic Mike .... before they go on stage they all G themselves haha
Love this! I found MWMH and Binged from Mike Higher…you all are amaze balls!!
Am I the only one who thinks Garrett and Josh sound extremely similar?
on the topic of jury duty, my mom had always wanted to do jury duty but because she has paralegal training she was always counted out.
i think our jury system needs an overhaul
You don’t forget where you buried a body.
A little late to the argument, but my local Menards has home improvement and grocery items. 😂
I have grown up with someone who’s favorite store is Menards… I still have no clue what type of store to classify Menards as. I’ve purchased a shelving unit from that store, I have also purchased movies from there 😅
I remember this case. I watched a documentary about it years ago while Matt was still missing. So glad he was found
I legit have watched/ listened to this episode so many times. The fact that his soul made sure his family found him by have the machine get trapped. To the palm tree growing and giving new life and the family then taking the tree ugh my heart❤
My best friends son was murdered 10 yrs ago and she still breaks down and cries several times a week and she has no questions as to how, why or who. His killer still walks free tho. She knows who he is and fights daily to how serve her own justice. I’ve had to talk her down several times from doing it. This case is heart breaking. The palm tree is beautiful. Definitely was spiritual intervention.
Menards is one of the many core memory “commercial jingles” from the Midwest. SAVE BIG MONEY AT MENARDS!!!!!
As an Aussie living in Sydney all my life, we have absolutely NO justice system. If you want to commit murder, domestic violence, rape, pedophilia etc, you do it here because almost always, the perpetrator/perpetrators get off with a slap on the wrist & “if” by some miracle this pathetic so called justice system does decide to jail an offender/offenders, they barely serve any time. I would say 7 times out of 10 the police do a great job, only to sadly watch the these criminal/criminals get off & reoffend over & over again. Thank God we have strict gun laws, without that, Australia would be a terrible place to live.
Omg,the moment u said they e2xlyj41aL0&t=1h16m30s 1:16:30 found him and how just make me want to cry for the family 😢🥺
In Australia we use mattocks to break up tough soil...so Michael definitely bought it to bury Matthew!
What kind of father who let his 20 year old kid be with a 44!! Harram
That is so freaking awesome!! I thought that before you said that they kept it!! That tree literally grew and was fed by him. That tree IS him!!
Your guest sounds just like garret can’t tell the difference 😅
Menards has food tho. People are so weird.
