Just too wierd.
This episode and guest are the worst thus far.
I haven’t listened to this podcast in quite a while and was curious about there being 12 comments on here. I didn’t have to listen very long to figure out why. This episode is disgusting and so offkilter. There are so many things overlooked and not talked about and excused that should absolutely not be. my respect just went down the drain for the host ￼
Hardly a story worth an entire episode about.
terrible episode. terrible guest. her husband looked at CP (probably not the first or last time) but decides to twist it and say regular p*rn is the bigger issue in society? pearl clutching about that while staying married to a sick man and also feeling "compassion" for all other sick men. not surprising neither of them get any work anymore. disgusting.
Shame on her mother for taking her choice away like that. I’m sure that haunted her her entire life and will continue to. I know she was young and made some bad choices but come on.
my childhood pedophile stalker started with just looking, progressed to stalking, got sent away 2 times to treatment and jail, and still came back 5 and 10 years later. He "went away" one last time and came back to rape and abuse a 10 year old girl. He was intelligent and manipulating. this podcast/story is in bad taste and doesn't potray the risk and reality of progression (even after treatment) and repeat offenders.
This lady really went out and got herself a shame/reward new start wedding ring and pretended that marriage and man were brand new. The host "that's wonderful. It's a huge relief he won't face jail time". For who? What on earth.
“The men I saw were not the image that I had” of abusers and pedophiles… how can you get so close to the right conclusion and get it so wrong. We shouldn't care what "everyone" thinks but we should consider our impact on those around us. This man should absolutely not be coaching kids teams. Is this woman even thinking about that? I hope this person realizes they taught their daughter to stay with someone through crime and abuse if the person calls it "sickness". You really let the child you're supposed to protect make the decision for you? What a terrible mistake. Another mistake : funneling your whole perspective on this through one expensive organization that equates sex addiction with pedophilia. This husband is directing all right. He's in complete charge of the story of his family and he's only going to get and do worse. This show was always terrible, got worse when it became all writers or fame-adjacent people who overwrite and overproduce their own story. Came back to see if my assessment was accurate or whether things had changed. Listeners should really question these satisfying little stories.
I hate this episode. The sugar coating of his child abuse is gross. Porn is not the same as child sex abuse material. Stop conflating the two. Your husband is sick and your children are in danger. Not because of the porn, because he is sexually gratified by children being victimized.
this was one of the sweetest, yet heartbreaking stories. I needed to hear this today. 💕
How did we just completely skip over the fact it was CP? Or why? Or how? And why didn’t that justify a divorce ? Wth
Why was it so skimmed over that this man is a pedophile? He is described as "a sex addict who watched illegal porn?" and "a good man" over and over again. And jeez God forbid the wife can't wear some of the jewellery ever again. Like the families reputation was the only victim? Wow. So upsetting. I can't believe Danni wouldn't at least cover this story honestly or at the very least, in full. This episode is very off beat with the back catalogue of the Podcast and as a fan of Family Secrets I feel quite upset.
I love this podcast but I think it’s deeply problematic you are allowing someone to be an apologist for pedophiles. Soemone that downloads child porn intentionally is not a sex or porn addict, they’re a pedophile.
Had to stop when you started on the liberal crap. I'm interested in family secrets not your political opinions.
ohmy that feeling of wanting...needing...to say something important that will make a parent want to stay. I know it well and it never really goes away.
Love this podcast. Would recommend. Not a lot of new episodes though.
I so appreciate her telling her story. These stories need to be exposed, for the sake of the victims, and so it can be stopped. I'm so glad that she has made a good life and found a good husband.
This one was as good, as the last one was bad. She is genuine and smart. A good communicator.He missed out on so much of real life with his family, bc of being a narcissist. The more selfish a person is, the less happy they are. I'm sorry for his family.
