    “I will f**king kill you!”

    “I will f**king kill you!”

    Episode 10 is a deep dive into stalking types, characteristics of stalkers, and useful information to help victims of stalking.
    TRIGGER WARNING
    After recording this episode a victim of domestic violence sent me a recording of a DV incident. I feel this is very important for people to listen to. It gives a real insight into the terror and helplessness a stalking victim feels. If you feel this may trigger you, I suggest you not listen to this episode.

    Literally, millions are stalked every year, yet there is still so much stigma, silence, and shame around this subject. It’s time we speak up. Together, we can all break the silence on this unacceptable, illegal, and far-too-widespread behaviour.

    EPISODE NOTES: Michelle met her stalker at a giveway sign. You can meet people anywhere. Things were great in the beginning, but things went from bad to worse pretty quickly. From black eyes, to choking, to eventually having a price on her head.

    In this episode we talk to Scott. Normally when we think of stalking victims we think of females being stalked by an ex male partner. Scott has been stalked for 20 years by a women he has never had a relationship with. It's the most bizarre story..ever.

    Bringing up children is a hard job any day of the week. But throw into the mix two young children with maladaptive behaviour, and a young mother who has just undergone spinal surgery, leaving her in a wheelchair during recuperation. Now, what was needed here was a nanny who could fly in like Mary Poppins and help Shannon with the children and chores. What flew in was a mother's worst nightmare.

Excellent

This is a much-needed look at the terrifying and infuriating ordeals that stalking victims go through, not just from the stalkers but from unhelpful and incompetent police and courts.
It’s riveting.
