    SEASON PREMIERE:
    Officer Jaselyn Grant used her police service weapon to kill her wife Keara Crowder. She claimed self-defense but the evidence shows her motive was fueled by passionate jealousy and rage. In this episode, I discuss issues of police domestic violence and stalking. I go in-depth to share the details of the tragic story of a wife/mother who lost her life at the hands of her wife.

That one Ali girl ,

You NEED to Listen to this podcast!

Katherine's research and storytelling is beyond excellent; simply put. I am blown away by every episode and how thorough it is. She's also compassionate towards the victims, which you can hear in her delivery. I greatly appreciate the good apple segments as well. I truly believe what Katherine is doing is extremely important and needs to be heard by all. The most mind blowing episode for me was the post Katrina incidents but every episode is phenomenal.
