Britney: Inside the Dream by Steve Dennis and Through the Storm By Lynne Spears are referenced heavily in this episode and we consider both required reading!

Here are the initial stories about Lynne Spears’ May 6th legal request:

*Please note that the wording on The Blast article has changed since the initial post from saying that Britney’s team was “not aware of Lynne’s filing” to “Lynne actually spoke with Jamie before filing her documents” (thank you to @britneyteca on Twitter for capturing this!):

Here is the Twitter thread were we have been breaking down the coverage of Lynne’s filing (click this tweet to follow the rest of the thread and check our Twitter for continuing analysis of recent coverage):

Here are screenshots from Jamie Lynn’s Instagram story on May 6th as news was breaking:

And this isn’t covered in the episode, but for some bonus reading on Lynne and Britney, check out this Daily Mail article from 2008 (thank you @chughes1180!)

This episode name is a reference to a poem that Britney posted on her website on May 22, 2006 in her “Britney’s Letters” section of the site. Below is the full poem:

Remembrance of Who I Am

No more chains

That you gave me.

Enough of pain

Now I’m craving

Something sweet, so delight

How do you stand sleeping at night?

Silly patterns that we follow

You pull me in

I’m being swallowed.

By the ones you think you love

They pull you down

You can’t see up above.

Manipulation is the key

They screw it in

Because you’re naive.

You come to me now

Why do you bother?

Remember the Bible

The sins of the Father.

What you do

You pass down

No wonder why

I lost my crown.

You don’t see me now

You ask yourself why

My crown is back

And it’s way too high

For you to be in my presence

Especially my son

You should bow down

I’ve only just begun.

The guilt you fed me

Made me weak.

The voodoo you did

I couldn’t speak.

You’re awakening

The phone is ringing.

Resurrection of my soul

The fear I’m bringing.

What will you say

And what will you do?

She’s not the same person that you’re used to.

You trick me one, twice, now it’s three.

Look who’s smiling now

Damn, it’s good to be me!

*This is for everyone who thinks they know me…

I forgive you.

We appreciate you listening!
