Beyond Baby Reindeer: The Reality of Stalking with Nicole Madigan Life Uncut

    • Society & Culture

In the past few weeks, the Netflix show ‘Baby Reindeer’ has been the number 1 TV show in the world. The bio of the show reads “When a struggling comedian shows an act of kindness to a vulnerable woman, it sparks a suffocating obsession which threatens to wreck both their lives.”
This show provided quite a nuanced look at the insidious nature of stalking and a lot of the complex emotions that the victims can experience.
Joining the podcast today is Nicole Madigan. Nicole is a journalist and the author of “Obsession”. Nicole was stalked for over three years. It wreaked havoc on her life and trapped her in a constant state of fear.
