Munchausen By Proxy: A Sister's Story
You can hear the second half of Kate's conversation with Andrea here. Subscribe to Mamamia Warning: this episode contains strong topics around infant death and discussion about medical child abuse.   “The utter trust a child has with their mother is sacred”  As part of an exclusive No Filter series, guest host Kate Langbroek speaks about the delicate relationship Andrea Dunlop had with her sister Megan with a story that will change the way you see children’s healthcare. Things took a turn when she started to experience bizarre health episodes, once Megan claimed she was losing her hair but was actually shaving it.

Made familiar with recent documentaries like ‘Take Care of Maya’ the Kowalski’s trial and Andrea’s own podcast ‘Nobody Should Believe Me’. Andrea shares her own very personal experiences and answers the questions that linger: what truly happened? and how do you possibly move on when you think a child is in danger?THE END BITS:Andrea Dunlop's latest novel Women Are The Fiercest Creatures is available here.  Kate Langbroek's book Ciao Bella is available here.Feedback?

Not Just Another Ghost Story With Tristan Redman

Not Just Another Ghost Story With Tristan Redman
Subscribe to Mamamia This isn’t just another ghost story. This one has far too many creepy and strange coincidences.Journalist Tristan Redman had unexplained things happen in his childhood bedroom. And he wasn’t the only one. There was another family, who lived in the same house, who had similar stories. The house really did seem… well… haunted. Then things got even weirder. Tristan discovered his wife’s great grandmother was murdered in the house next door. Could that have anything to do with the ghost of Tristan’s childhood? The more Tristan dug the more questions he had, not just about the paranormal, but about the murder itself. In this No Filter, Tristan talks about an extremely complicated murder plot, how he went to see psychic mediums and why he chose to keep investigating this mystery (and create a hit podcast in the process) despite it causing enormous friction within his wife’s family.Tristan's podcast Ghost Story is available on Wondery here, Spotify here, or Apple Podcasts here.  THE END BITS:Ghost Story from Wondery and Pineapple Street Studios. Listen on Wondery+, Amazon Music and everywhere you get your podcasts. Read more about the origin Tristan Redman's Ghost Story here, and the six things his podcasts didn't tell you here.Mamamia podcast True Crime Conversations is available here. Feedback?

Want more from Johann? Listen to the rest of his chat with Mia hereSubscribe to Mamamia Does your brain feel a bit like a marshmallow lately? Do you find it hard to concentrate? Do you pick up your phone only to find that an hour has passed and you’re down some obscure rabbit hole that’s landed you on the Facebook page of your high school English teacher and you’ve forgotten why you picked up your phone in the first place? You're not alone. It has been SO HARD to focus lately. So hard to hold our attention for longer than a goldfish can. Is it COVID? Is it technology? And….is it our fault? If you ask Mia's guest today, Johann Hari, author of the best-selling book Stolen Focus - he’ll tell you it’s not. Because we haven’t lost our focus… it’s not like something we misplaced. Our focus has deliberately been stolen from us. And this is how to get it back. THE END BITS: With thanks to Johann Hari. Stolen Focus is available now. Feedback? We’re listening!
