    The Dark Side of Maternal Instinct

    The Dark Side of Maternal Instinct

    Welcome to the latest episode of our true crime podcast, where we dive deep into the twisted world of Munchausen by proxy, a rare and horrifying form of child abuse. In this episode, we explore some of the most notorious cases of Munchausen by proxy involving mothers who deliberately make their children sick in order to gain attention and sympathy.
    We start with the infamous case of Dee Dee Blanchard, whose manipulation of medical professionals and community led to her daughter Gypsy Rose orchestrating her murder. We then delve into the disturbing story of Lacey Spears, who was convicted of killing her 5-year-old son by poisoning him with salt through his feeding tube. We also cover the chilling case of Kathy Bush, who was found guilty of repeatedly poisoning her son with salt until he died.

    These cases are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Munchausen by proxy, a disorder that is estimated to affect thousands of children each year. We explore the complex psychological issues that underlie this disorder, as well as the challenges of identifying and stopping it before it's too late.
    Join us as we uncover the dark world of Munchausen by proxy and shed light on this disturbing form of child abuse.

Calycegray ,

Terrible quality

I was super interested in the stories but how are there so many errors! I can’t believe this was active for 6 years. I can’t even get through 6 episodes.

Poor quality, poorly done

Audio quality is bad. Names and places are mispronounced. The host lost me when she started insulting the victims physical descriptions. She called the father of a murdered child “paunchy and unattractive.” This was hurt after drowning on about how the dead child’s spirit “spoke to people” to get his case solved. Awful. Some people shouldn’t narrate true crime, and this is an example

B O R I N G!!!!! 😩🙉

It’s like she’s reading this info for the VERY FIRST TIME, with lots of errors. She also needs to speak louder. I tried several episodes & only got about 4 minutes in on each. Do yourself a favor &
move along…
Not EVERYONE should have a podcast.
This one is proof of that!
