About The Followers: The Madness of Two
How did the perfect suburban mom get wrapped up with doomsday preppers and prophets? For months, the media has been chasing the story of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell, covering the strange beliefs they shared and the disappearance of her two kids. But this new podcast produced in collaboration with USG Audio digs deep into the why: Why did five people end up dead? Host Sarah Treleaven explores religious fanaticism, brainwashing, greed, and the reality that even the most ordinary people can come to believe extreme ideas.
Produced By: Sarah Treleaven, Kathleen Goldhar and Katrina Onstad

Do You Know Mordechai? is a genre-bending podcast following the story of Arya, a women who had finally fallen in love again after a tough divorce with a man she met online – Mordechai. He was everything: quirky, fun and attentive. Her friend Kathleen was delighted for her, although a little wary of what she thought were some red flags. Then came that fateful Sunday night when a knock on the door revealed a woman who asked, “Do you know Mordechai?” The series is a story that questions friendship, belonging, lies and love.
