Episode 51


Talia grew up in a small Orthodox Jewish community with lots of rules and expectations, many of them surrounding dating and courtship. If you aren’t married by the time you turn 22, you’re labeled as “nebach," a word that means sad, misfortunate, pitiable.

Talia doesn’t want to be “nebach,” and when she finds the perfect man for her, she thinks she’s headed for marraige ... until the man she loves confesses to having pedophiliac thoughts.

There are a lot of true crime podcasts out there about people like Talia’s ex. There AREN’T many stories out there about the Talias of the world. In this episode, Talia gets the chance to share hers.
