I’m not a gamer, I only play games on my mobile device when I have time – and that’s usually only a couple of minutes here and there. I found Best Fiends a little over a year ago and I am still constantly coming back to this game for more play. It engages your brain with fun levels where you collect little “fiends” to help you conquer the puzzles and challenges to accomplish your goals. There are numerous options for play, they constantly are adding new themes and levels every month, you can stop playing anytime and pick up from right where you left off without being penalized, you never run out of lives or energy, and it’s free to download! If my word isn’t enough for you, check out this email I received from Weirdo family member, Michelle Pettus. She said, “DM..thank you much for putting me on to Best Fiends..I kept seeing the ads for it but wasn’t sure about downloading until I heard YOU talk about it. It’s very fun… its a lot different from my constant Candy Crushing… I needed the change!” With over 100 million downloads, this 5-star rated mobile puzzle game is a must-play! Download best Fiends FREE on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Look for BEST FIENDS – that’s FIENDS (like friends, but without the “r”). Best FIENDS!

Wondery presents DETECTIVE TRAPP
Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs — as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at wondery.fm/DTDarkness
