I think it's silly and naive to imply that Becky suddenly became a problem child, had a personality change, dropped out, got pregnant, and ended up homeless because she found out who her mom was 🤨. Seriously... either she already had problem behavior that went mostly unnoticed or her issues were genetic (many mental illnesses strike in late adolescence/early adulthood) and bound to happen regardless of knowing her background.

it blows my mind that Sylvia's sister just stood by and watched all this happen. I'd risk ANYTHING - including my life- for the sake of saving my brother or sister from being slowly tortured to death. Nothing short of being physically restrained could keep me from trying to protect them.

when a 15 year old child is involved with an adult...it's not a 'relationship. it's child abuse.

Mathilde Fjeldstad I like the dichotomy between Sammy & Vanessa, I mean she can't help the way she sounds, so try offering some feedback that would help you enjoy listening to her.

Regarding their sponsor - Upstart is terrible. They still base loans on your credit score and nothing else. I tried it myself.

Patricia Hearst was covered on Hostages. Now the case is being covered here too. This week Conspiracy Theories as well as Unexplained Mysteries are both covering Atlantis. For those of us who listen to the bulk of Parcast podcasts, it's disappointing to have shows repeat the same topic. I understand it works for fans who may listen to one show and not the other.
