About Us

Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

NXIVM: Inside The Organization

EIn 2019, Keith Raniere, one of the founders of NXIVM, a self-proclaimed self-help organization, went to trial for federal crimes including, extortion, forced labor, sex trafficking, fraud, and the production and the possession of child pornography. There have been numerous articles and documentaries made about this scandal, but in today’s episode, we look at the testimony of Lauren Salzman, who struck a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Keith.
