    The Grave in the Basement | Unlocked

    Donna's secret was how a man she went to visit for a long weekend took her on a psychotic trip, held her in a basement for days and might have been plotting to kill her. It was a really difficult secret for her to share, and a difficult secret to listen to. But she made it out in the end and has set her life on the right track.Donna's back for a follow up interview with me today. We'll talk about the relationship she has with her children today, and how things went south for years after her time in the basement.

    Susie.

Fabulous podcast & host!

One of my top 5 favorite podcasts ever. I am a sucker for story telling, and this really hits. Ben is such a great interviewer - very authentic and genuine, empathetic yet gently pushes when needed. Only complaint - give the people more content! I would love to see a weekly podcast. I save up episodes for a month or two so I can binge, and I get so sad when I run out of content. It’s just such a great show.

The best podcast

This has become my favorite podcast. I love hearing people’s stories in their own words and there’s no judgement. Ben is so welcoming and knows all the right questions to ask! Highly recommend!
