Like but hard to follow

I love the show but it’s annoyingly hard to search for recent episodes because the show seems to be fragmented at season 14 or so (even as a Wondery subscriber I can’t follow)?? I don’t get it every time I search I can’t find the new seasons. I hope they can resolve this glitch and merge bc it’s been going on for a while

A master class in how to stay stuck in victimhood and also in how to get your child killed.

I listened to all of this podcast in an attempt to understand people who are a bit broken. Life kicks us around. There are pathways to growth and resolution. This podcast covers precious few. In the end, these stories tend to view “finding a ‘good’ man” as the happy ending, with a distinct evangelical Christian flavor of women as partial people. This might just play a part in perpetual victimhood, just saying. Season 16 was the host sharing her vitriol regarding her mom, who on a different day could have been a venerated victim. A host with such unresolved pain and reactive judgment explains a lot. Season 17 glorified a woman who kept a man as a live-in babysitter, knowing he had given a child a head injury in the past, knowing he had 4 restraining orders against him, knowing her child suddenly had bruises of clear abuse **in his ears**, knowing her child told her he hurt him, knowing her child begged her not to leave. That man killed that boy and somehow the woman is the victim. Naive is not cute and not an excuse. Motherhood is a responsibility. Sometimes women die from low self esteem, from clinging to men who kill them. To glorify a woman who lead her child to his death through her own low self esteem is a version of snuff porn and I feel gross having listened. I encourage any subscriber to unfollow as I have and if you have not listened, consider yourself lucky.

Keep talking

I don't find Tiffany's voice or manner offputting. I'm grateful for the modeling of non-violent communication, including what she does 98% of episodes: listening.
