Episode 36: Wallowing

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

Today’s episode will introduce you to a sadistic monster who masqueraded as a good samaritan and a loving mother. She hid over 10 years of torture and abuse behind the closed doors of a cute little house nestled in a tiny rural town. Plug your headphones in and come meet the mother you never wish you had. Listen Now!

Special guest psychologist Dr. Joni Jonston will join Emily to chat all about Michelle Knotek and why it’s probably not the best idea to let her out of prison.
