Lauren Palmigiano: Sorry Sarah, sorry,
Lauren Palmigiano: The executives from MailChimp are here.
They just wanted to say hi.
Nicol Paone: Uh, we are very excited about this. I gotta be honest,
Nicol Paone: this childhood murder has been really great for MailCrimp.
Michaela Watkins: Uh, do you mean MailChimp?
Nicol Paone: Yeah, that's what I said.
Nicol Paone: I actually, I use MailChimp?
Michaela Watkins: Oh you do?
Nicol: yeah.
Travis Helwig: We can't wait to hear who did it.
Nicol Paone: So cool.
Michaela Watkins: Without truth, there can be
no justice, and I guess,
Michaela Watkins: I guess what this podcast is
really is just an exploration
Michaela Watkins: of that truth. Maybe we'll never
know who killed Hayma Lee.
Michaela Watkins: (laughs) J-K.
J-K. I know, I guess I know
Michaela Watkins: exactly who did it.
Michaela Watkins: Um, it's very clear
Michaela Watkins: from the call records, and the pings, and
all of the things that are sort of
Michaela Watkins: mapped out on the cell towers.

He can't say one bad thing...
Michaela Watkins: So no one thinks it was best buy?
don't kid yourself.
Michaela Watkins: What if it was 40 episodes?
What if it was 90?
Michaela Watkins: You are stepping out on Stephanie. Is that correct?
Michaela Watkins: What do you want? I do a podcast.
It was supposed to be for 4 people.
Michaela Watkins: Do you think if I thought this
was going to be anything
Michaela Watkins: I would have MailChimp sponsor us?
What do you want to know?
Michaela Watkins: Do you want to know who did it?
Fine, fine, I have a confession for you
Michaela Watkins: It was me. It was Sarah Koenig,
Okay, I did it.
Michaela Watkins: I guess I did it for that sweet,
sweet Mailchimp money, okay.
Michaela Watkins: I'm out of here, and by the way Crab
Crib is having a big sale
Michaela Watkins: on shrimp. So get your ass down there.
