This podcast is just amazing. Laura rightly focuses on the victims of each crime she covers and spends time educating us about warning signs of abuse and “murder in slow motion.” I’m a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and have found this so helpful in my work, as I feel I can better evaluate my patients and give them tools to recognize their dangerous situations, and encouragement to get out. A friend of mine recently found out her husband was cheating on her and this was her final straw in the marriage; she filed for divorce but he was not aware she was planning this. He threatened to kill himself with a butcher knife while standing right in front of her, and when she told me this I knew it was absolutely a major red flag. Using tools from Laura’s podcast and Instagram account I was able to help my friend understand just how dangerous this behavior is for her and her kids; she has since filed a restraining order and out multiple security measures in place, and is in therapy. I’m so proud of her and so thankful for Laura’s deeply meaningful and important work!
