In this special holiday episode Esther and Lorena discuss the Netflix series "The Watcher" with Tim and Lance from Crawlspace Podcast. We compare and contrast this fictionalized version of the true mystery "The Watcher House". In 2014, Derek and Maria Broaddus purchased a home in New Jersey. Soon afterward they began receiving letters from an anonymous person who said they were watching the house and young family. When the letters became threatening they questioned whether they should give up their dream home.
