Ep. 27 Mother

Ep.27 Mother

Lorna Tucker doesn’t think of herself as a journalist, more of a collector of stories. So years ago, when she stumbled on a story that needed to be told, she knew she wouldn’t stop until the truth came out.

Correction: Maeve mistakenly refers to former US president LBJ as Lyndon Boyd Johnson, it is of course Lyndon Baines Johnson. Apologies.
