Episode 29 -- "Extreme Plot Twist"

Today’s podcast features two separate, unique, stories that are both themed around the same thing, true crime stories that have big plot twists at the end. The first story you will hear is called, “Basketball With Friends," which is about a secret, forbidden relationship. The second story you will hear is called, “What Happened in Room 348?!,” and it is about a crime, or more specifically a crime scene, that made absolutely no sense, until a detective noticed a very small detail.DISCLAIMER: This podcast is the remastered audio from two popular videos on my "MrBallen" YouTube channel. The first story, "Basketball With Friends is from a video called "This girl is about to live a NIGHTMARE." (Here is the link to that video -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7j1sSFdsC8&t=540s). The second story, "What Happened in Room 348!?" is from a video of the same name.
