Labeled wrong?

I’m confused. It is labeled the 1st episode, but throughout the narrator says it’s episode 4. The actual story doesn’t match the description posted here. Has potential but I’m confused.

Devious Con Women

Such a diabolical pair, lives lost. Eventually the women received the verdict and sentencing they deserved. Dateline narrator, Keith Morrison is always enjoyable to listen to, such a calm, soothing voice, no matter the subject matter...
