if anyone is interested in listening I'd recommend season 12 and season 9 (the only two i've listened to all the way through so far)

essentially... super in-depth first person narration describing personal experience of abusive relationships -- often multi episode -- ranging from subtle manipulation, to serious catfishing, to violent abuse. It sounds really dark and it often is but more than that it's just really validating and unique in how the host has people walk us through everything from start to finish, how things started all nice and normal then became (often gradually) totally fucked.

I tend to avoid true crime myself, if only because the genre is flooded with true crime entertainment podcasts and I cannot deal with those, literally making jokes about the worst thing that could happen to someone? Not my bag of tea, you know? But if this takes the pain of being victimized then I might give it a listen.

ya this is unlike any other true crime podcast I've listened to. It's always somehow even just a little relatable even though most of the experiences are quite extreme... and I think that's because it's completely centered on people's personal experiences navigating abuse (in all its nuanced and not-so-nuanced forms). Of everything I've listened to so far there's barely been anything about physical violence. Mostly crimes of emotional manipulation. And a lot of DEEP catfishing lol. Would be interested in what you think of it.

5 hours ago I was like ill listen to one episode and then go to bed. now I'm on episode 5.

I don't even know what this guy did yet but I'm hooked. it's exactly like you said about it being focused on the personal experience. it's nice that the host clearly respects the gravity of what this people went though.

haha oops sorry not sorry! trust me when i say been there. Which season are you on? and Yes, it's truly a survivor's platform for telling stories that mAiNstReAm mEdiA just doesn't have time for.
