Description

For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.

When there is speaking and music with lyrics at the same time, it’s hard to focus on the speaking. Background music playing quietly would be ok, but lyrics and speaking at once is overwhelming. I’m not a fan of the songs anyway;/

okay..loving it up until the neurologists incorrect definition of a sociopath. I'm looking at my copy of the DSM5 Right now and contrary to what he says, about sociopaths (Aka those with antisocial personality disorder) having feelings and being able to feel remorse, this is wrong completely. number 7 of criteria for the disorder states: "Lack of remorse, as indicated by bring indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another."

I just started this, love it! the only downside is there is a LOT of ads for such short episodes and they're long ads too

A white male long haul trucker, animal abuser, emotionally abusive to the wife, emotionally distance with the kids....it's like reading straight off an FBI serial killer profile list. So many obivous red flags everyone around him ignored. Insane.

minombre esnada If my husband killed a kitten at all the way he did, even not in front of the children i would have left his ass so fast. The fact that he did this in front of her children and the mother didn't pack up the kids and leave that day, blows my mind. i would be terrified! If he could do that to a kitten, what is he capable of doing to my children?

If you like insight into a serial killer's life and crime drama, you'll love episodes 1-5. If you like quiet sobbing, self aggrandizement, listening to someone's therapy session, virtue signaling, and annoying music, start at episode 6. Something for everyone.

Wowsers I wasn't prepared for this episode. Tough to listen to. Heavy alright.

The frequent cut to the creepy folk music is annoying.

instead of complaining about how this podcast affects you, consider the narrators story instead of your own. Indeed it takes great courage to expose an emotional hurt. great work about a difficult subject.

I kinda wish Melissa and Don would be together. Like lovers...I guess that would be a Hollywood story then.

Are you trying to get his damn kids taken away? He was fifteen, you've said you had no blame, but you bring it up and say he was violent. Then when he tries to change topics, you drag it out more. That part made me cringe a little.

The first 5-6 episodes were great. Once the victim's son starts trying to get all "deep" with Happy Face's daughter, it gets a little old.

The music is good but sometimes too loud to hear the conversation.
