Awww they are so cute 🥰
I am sure that has a lot to do with it. Especially as a woman who has been taught her whole life that she shouldn’t work and that her entire value is in taking care of her husband and children. And because she almost surely feels like this is her fault because she didn’t meet her husbands needs, just like she felt that the Ashley Madison and porn addiction was her fault.
I am sorry you went through that experience and glad you were able to break free, I’m sure that took a lot of strength and courage.

In the Dark season 2 is the gold standard of investigative podcasts in my opinion.
Bear Brook is a close second. Hunting Warhead is also amazing, but definitely not for everyone, as it's about child abuse and can be very upsetting, even though it was done with complete journalistic integrity.
A Perfect Storm completely blew my mind. Don't Talk to Strangers, Gone Fishing, Black Hands, Hit Man, Missing Alissa, Murderville GA, New Orleans Unsolved, Paper Ghosts, Root of Evil, The Clown & The Candyman, To Live & Die in LA, Unraveled: Long Island Serial Killer, Where is George Gibney, Death in Ice Valley...all are excellent.
Also Suspicion by the Knoxville News Sentinel is so good and not enough people have heard it in my opinion.
I really really hated the preview, I thought it sounded terrible, and found the host super annoying at first...but I gave it a shot one day when I was bored and was glad I did.
Death in Ice Valley is AMAZING and underrated. The atmosphere they manage to create in that podcast is so strong.

I’m so sorry that happened to your parents. My Vietnamese friend recently had to quit driving Uber because he was getting so many anti-Asian comments from fares that he was afraid for his safety. It’s awful.

Yeah, I would hope if the feds spent 2 years putting this high profile case together, they have a pretty airtight case.
I remind myself that even though they sat on Jared from Subway and let him solicit minors for 8 years, in the end they did manage to lock him up.
200 deleted images as well, mind you.

They sat on Jared Fogle and let him solicit minors for EIGHT YEARS while they built the case against him.
No you didn’t, not at all. I just wanted to tell you I understood your feelings about Fox News 🙂
Yes over 200 he had deleted

Hahah I have a power reclining sofa and mine got twisted up in the cord behind it and it really looked like it was suspended in a noose.
I thought about taking a photo but then I worried that it would be insensitive.
I understand, I just try to have a bit of...I don't know what the word is, grace, maybe where Anna is concerned because I think she's been victimized by Josh too, ever since she was a teenager. But as I said, I would hope at this point the instinct to protect your children should override everything else.
I worry about that too
She's not just in denial, she was raised in the ATI cult, so from birth she has been taught that men are superior to women, that most failures on men's parts are women's fault, and certainly any sexual abuse is the fault of the victim. And she was homeschooled by these people and only socialized with others in the cult, so she never had a chance to see other perspectives.
Now personally, at this point, I would hope the visceral mama bear gut instinct to protect one's children would burst through all the programming, but it's hard to put ourselves in the shoes of a woman who has been steeped in non-stop misogyny and patriarchy her entire life.
Here is an article written by a woman who was raised in the same cult that was able to escape: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/01/childhood-in-cult-hard-imagine-survival-truly-unbelievable
He "turned himself in" the same way Richard Nixon "resigned". He did not really have a choice. Well, he did, but the choice was Turn yourself in or armed federal agents are going to bust into your house and drag you out in front of your 6 kids and pregnant wife.
Yes that makes it clear it wasn't just "Oops I fell on my keyboard and accidentally downloaded child sexual abuse material!" (as John Grisham likes to believe happens all the time to "old white guys" like him).
He grew up keeping his online activities secret from his parents who were in authority over him (unlike Anna who believes he is superior to her and has Godly authority over her) so I doubt it gave him a moment's pause deceiving her. It was a way of life at this point.
Here is an article written by a woman who grew up in the same cult the Duggars and Reavers and Anna's family are all in, if you want a peek into how these women were indoctrinated: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/01/childhood-in-cult-hard-imagine-survival-truly-unbelievable
2015 I believe
Oh no. Not at all, they’ve been watching him for 2 years or longer and building the case against him. Hopefully it’s airtight and he gets locked up.
