Fight or Flight

This podcast is equally compelling, intriguing and scary to listen to! If you’d like to crime, you could probably handle this. I love that the host of this podcast have chosen to highlight survivors. What a beautiful thing.

Fight or Flight

Such an interesting story told by Sarah Swindell and her daughter! I had heard of Shelly Koptek previously from my sister who had read a book about her. I love true crime and really enjoyed hearing Sarah’s pod cast about this psychotic woman who did unspeakable things!
