About This Show

A shocking crime story or a hilariously serious analysis of our values and ideologies. From Union, Missouri comes a woman on a mission to heal the nation, society, and restore faith in justice. Alexis James knows what she’s talking about. She has been exploited, humiliated and screwed over for a long time — now she insists on payback. And yes, there will be pie.
