Guest host Kate Langbroek finds out in this episode of No Filter.

    Munchausen By Proxy: A Sister's Story

    You can hear the second half of Kate's conversation with Andrea here. Subscribe to Mamamia

    Warning: this episode contains strong topics around infant death and discussion about medical child abuse.   “The utter trust a child has with their mother is sacred” 

    As part of an exclusive No Filter series, guest host Kate Langbroek speaks about the delicate relationship Andrea Dunlop had with her sister Megan with a story that will change the way you see children’s healthcare. Things took a turn when she started to experience bizarre health episodes, once Megan claimed she was losing her hair but was actually shaving it. Another time she fabricated a twin pregnancy and even had a baby shower.

    The situation escalated when Megan eventually did have two children and the situation tore the family apart to estrangement. Kate Langbroek and Andrea explore the fascinating and heart wrenching topic of Munchausen by Proxy, a complex psychological condition. Made familiar with recent documentaries like ‘Take Care of Maya’ the Kowalski’s trial and Andrea’s own podcast ‘Nobody Should Believe Me’. Andrea shares her own very personal experiences and answers the questions that linger: what truly happened? and how do you possibly move on when you think a child is in danger?THE END BITS:Andrea Dunlop's latest novel Women Are The Fiercest Creatures is available here.

    Subscribe to Mamamia

    In 1991, Poppy King launched a range of seven matt lipsticks, named after the seven deadly sins. She was 19 years old.

    Within three years, the company had grown to be one of the biggest cosmetic companies in Australia. In 1995 she received the Young Australian Of The Year award and that year the company made a profit of $6.5 million.A few years later though, Poppy shut it down and moved to the US.Poppy has always been a leader, not a follower and she’s always been an original thinker in a way that has not necessarily made it easy for her.

    Which is what makes her next move so unexpected.Check out Poppy King's cult classic lipsticks from the 90's, re-released here.

    Not Just Another Ghost Story With Tristan Redman

    Not Just Another Ghost Story With Tristan Redman

    Subscribe to Mamamia

    This isn’t just another ghost story. This one has far too many creepy and strange coincidences.Journalist Tristan Redman had unexplained things happen in his childhood bedroom. And he wasn’t the only one. There was another family, who lived in the same house, who had similar stories. The house really did seem… well… haunted. Then things got even weirder.

    Tristan discovered his wife’s great grandmother was murdered in the house next door. Could that have anything to do with the ghost of Tristan’s childhood? The more Tristan dug the more questions he had, not just about the paranormal, but about the murder itself. In this No Filter, Tristan talks about an extremely complicated murder plot, how he went to see psychic mediums and why he chose to keep investigating this mystery (and create a hit podcast in the process) despite it causing enormous friction within his wife’s family.Tristan's podcast Ghost Story is available on Wondery here, Spotify here, or Apple Podcasts here. 

    THE END BITS:Ghost Story from Wondery and Pineapple Street Studios. Listen on Wondery+, Amazon Music and everywhere you get your podcasts. Read more about the origin Tristan Redman's Ghost Story here, and the six things his podcasts didn't tell you here.Mamamia podcast True Crime Conversations is available here. Feedback?

Love this podcast

I’m really enjoying Kate’s interviews

Best thing about Mondays!

I just love this podcast so much and look forward to seeing who’s being interviewed each week. While I really loved Mia’s interviewing style, I’m absolutely obsessed with Kate’s way too! A treat for the ear canals!

schrist7 ,

Do we need stories from the US?

Two American guests in a row. Do we not have enough great (and/ or everyday) Australians? Love Kates interviewing but I lose interest when it is stories from from America. There are thousands of US podcasts I can listen to if I want to listen to guests and stories from the US!
