Love it

I am finishing up season 1, I’m hooked. The only changes would be the background music…sometimes it gets very repetitive and/or louder than the people speaking.

Amazing Survivors

This series was a wonderful celebration of surviving abuse, finding community to support you, and THRIVING! Thank you for all the work you did on this series. Hoping Jess gets pounded by the long arm of the law 🫶

It’s just gossip / cash grab

Season 20: There’s no analysis of predators, why people might fall for these scams, or really any proof other than screen shots/texts. The editing is really rough and all the girls sharing their drama sound the same so it’s hard to keep track of who is who and who is a friend and for some reason moms come on to give their perspective? No comprehensive timeline, questioning, or narration, it’s just listening to someone spill their tea. I find this podcast to be disrespectful to victims and hard to listen to. I had quit listening years ago and picked up with season 20 and I now remember why I stopped.

Also, seems like every season I’ve listened to involves people who come from deeply religious backgrounds. Would love an analysis on how evangelicalism and extreme religions perpetuate the ideas of domesticity and submission, that women are to serve their partner through god. People who follow religions are more susceptible to abuse because you do not believe you hold your own power/fate. It’s in the hand of the sky daddy and anyone can use that against you. Religion is a mental illness I swear- it’s probably related to why Jess didn’t feel safe being herself (definitely gay definitely dealing with homophobia and self hatred) and resorted to such abhorrent behavior and probably connected to why her victims stuck around so long. They were early 20s nurses with beliefs rooted in Christianity- where you are to be a submissive and domestic partner to manly man with no emotional intelligence. I hope all of these women have found strength within themselves and them and their husbands go to therapy and that they never have to deal with such selfish, manipulative, and destructive behavior again but Jess set the bar pretty low so who knows.

Please do better. This is just trash reality TV for a quick cash grab but as long as victims get some money 🤷🏻‍♀️ that’s their prerogative.
