I'm going to be interviewed for a thing that's going to be on one of the major streaming services. They haven't asked me not to discuss details but assume they don't want me to discuss details.

I helped a somewhat famous person find out someone had been reading their emails for years. I found a loose thread and gave it a little tug before handing it to their manager who I knew and had a good fan-famous person manager relationship with. That thread unraveled a pretty big sweater, way more than I would have ever guessed, but I was the right person in the right place to help them out. They're making a documentary on it and are interviewing me for it.

I'm sorry, what?

I forget how the people making it pitched it especially because I don't watch true crime stuff. I guess I'm picturing it like Making a Murderer which I never watched. Because I was literally the person who tipped them off, they want to talk to me about my experience to help tell the bigger story of what happened. From what they told me it's a lot bigger than just having access to one kind of famous person's email.

I expect it to be pretty niche, though Manitowoc, WI was pretty niche, too.
