This is raw and brutally honest. Shined a much needed light on the cycle of abuse that is perpetuating many victims and families.
Fiona Justine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/19
I can’t rave about this podcast enough. Through the course of 3 days I binge listened to the whole series at any down time I had throughout the day. In breaking their silence and coming to terms with abuse that was inflicted upon multiple members in one family, I believe they opened doors for...Read full review »

Sad story told by the victims, but the main narrator’s voice was so draining and apathetic
Bisunka via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/03/19
Such a sad moving story! I commend you for speaking out and telling your heartbreaking story of a family torn apart by such vile people. Thank you for bringing this to light and the need to talk out about experiences. Wishing your family love strength and healing x

What a brave and powerful podcast. I couldn’t stop listening .
Kath Pat via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/02/19
What a heartbreaking story. Hard to listen to in terms of what this family has gone through. Really brave to put their story out there. Ultimately it’s about triumph though & I wish them all well.
louloudee via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/02/19
This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to because of how confronting it is but also kind of healing. I can’t properly put into words how I feel about it but I’m glad that this podcast was made and that I had the chance to listen to it. I hope it finds its way to the ears of many...Read full review »

Not only does your story give others the familiarity, helping bring their dark to light.. But it helps show them they can speak about it and conquer its shadows. In addition, it aides families to see how coming together actually works out better in the end than turning the other cheek. Because...Read full review »

nici.graham via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/28/19
A lot of tears were shed as I listened to this but it is a must listen. The domino effect of abuse and manipulation is uncovered in this podcast. Raquel is an amazing woman telling an important story and opening up about something that must have been so difficult.
Larns28 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/28/19
I’m amazed at the incredible bravery of the whole family that was needed to publicly tell this history. A very moving podcast. Thank you for sharing your truths.
aldw85 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/28/19
Raquel has done an amazing job of unflinchingly telling her and her family’s story of rape and child abuse in order to help heal the pain and stop the cycle of abuse. It’s raw, it’s hard to listen to but it’s totally worth it. Well done Raquel.
AlleyCat1511 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/27/19
Thank you for your frank discussions of family secrets. Your personal discussions with your family members and closest friends were frank and courageous and will serve as a model for many other people’s family discussions, I am sure. We all need to discuss and confront these types of issues...Read full review »
Beth in Schenectady, NY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/19
This podcast is very well done, the interviews are difficult to listen to because the emotion is so raw but it’s a story the should be told. Amazing work.
alisaurus.wrecks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
Raequell told her story, & invited her family to tell their stories of sexual abuse together along with her which made the entire effort of the telling much more meaningful to me personally. It’s obvious it was a grueling yet healing experience for all but possibly Gabriel. I hope healing...Read full review »

Deeply moving story, incredible production. Thank you.
KatieHubbard via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/19
Loved this series - very engaging and easy to binge listen. The narrator has a great cadence and I hope she continues to make more podcasts. The story is super sad, enraging and terrible - but it’s like, and EXCELLENT podcast and so well told.
Bugs from Portland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/19
I really appreciate your raw honesty and that of your family. So brave. Each episode certainly helped me understand my own circumstances in particular trauma induced rage. Thank you.
youhelped via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/26/19
I enjoyed this podcast so much. Such brutal honesty. Huge admiration to everyone in the family who told their stories.
Dfyhvdfyjncfhjvcd via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/26/19
This podcast is raw, real, and emotional. Raquel does a beautiful job of telling a part of her families story, as well as being honest about the parts of her that are still openly struggling through and healing from the trauma she and her siblings experienced. Topics of guilt, resent, and self...Read full review »

A story that needed to be told just by a better narrator. It’s frustrating to listen to she talks so fuc*ing slow it’s ridiculous. I tried turning the speed up which was perfect for her but not the rest of the people who are speaking
Pixie-Rose the Frenchie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/19
I can’t believe those who’ve criticised the narration of this story. This is the narrators own story, I’m not sure what people are wanting from her. How dare she be criticised!!! She is opening up the dialogue to give other survivors the strength to reach out and seek help. This is a very...Read full review »

If you can get past the monotone narrator, it’s an interesting but sad story.

Really powerful! Thank you thank you thank you.
ChiaraS98 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/19
Thank you (and your family) for sharing this story. Very well done.
emsheree via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/19
Honest, powerful and so eye opening. Thank you for sharing your story ❤️
Deletedimmediately11 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/19
Familial sexual abuse is an unspoken scourge in our society and stories like this need to be told. It’s fascinating to go behind-the-scenes of a trial and hear what the victim and her family were thinking. A very well-done podcast.
Gently-used Merkin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/19
Title says it all. Praying for the entire families continued healing.
Isn't okay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/19
It takes real strength to share the deep secrets and trauma of a family in a way that respects each member. I feel for Raquel and her family after all they’ve been through. But I am confident that they will be okay because they are able to speak their truths and work through their trauma...Read full review »

I rarely write a review, but I can’t resist on this one. The narrator opened her soul and that is a rarity in the podcasts I listen to. The courage it took to do this podcast is rare. She has/is facing her demons head on and I loved this podcast. I hope it was cathartic for her. She deserves...Read full review »

I find the voice of the podcast presenter so important which is why I struggled with this one. An interesting and harrowing topic but I was constantly distracted by the dull, almost slowed down pace of Racquel’s voice. Sorry.
podcastmomma via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/25/19
Such a great honest story shared by Raquel. You are one brave women! So inspiring.
court7954 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/19
Thanks for releasing this podcast again. Essential to spread far and wide as the subject matter whilst, heartbreaking and shocking and the open sharing of the family in this format is just so relatable for far too many, me included. We need to talk about these “taboo” subjects that effect so many...Read full review »

Hi
Unfortunately I found the first episode so disjointed, I decided against listening to any more.
hecate64 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/22/19
Wow! What a powerful story. I was blown away by the raw honesty, not just of Raquel but by the open, no boundaries attitude of the family. Beautifully put together & so captivating. I listened to it at work on my headphones, I listed to the whole thing and was saddened but proud of the...Read full review »

Amazing podcast - kudos to the creator for her bravery. Leaves me wanting to hug her whole family and reassure them with compassion
AJWiseman via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/21/19
Each chapter adds more and more layers to this story. Looks like this podcast was released a year ago and is being released again episode by episode? I listen to a lot of true crime and this is raw to the bone.
Liquidmel via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/20/19
I’m a huge fan of casefile and was eager to listen to this show because it was recommended by them. It’s not engaging at all. Listened to the first three episodes and did not carento listen to the rest.
2makakos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/19
Really hard to listen to, but very moving and so important for raising awareness on child abuse. Racquel you are inspirational and I wish the best for you.
Good but needs updates via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/18/19
Powerful, gripping and informative. Thank you for sharing your story. Raquel you are absolutely captivating!
Aripbbg via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/18/19
This is a brutally honest and raw story which confronts so many issues within one family institution. Beautifully told by the narrator who lived every moment.
Elsie_Jai via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/15/19
Just listened to the first episode. I’m finding the narrator hard to enjoy listening to as she speaks with a droning monotone voice and sounds like she is just reading from her script. Storyline could keep me going??
SunshineAnd Lolipops via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/14/19
Sad I found this podcast before it was finished so I couldn’t binge it. So different to others out there. My favourite right now!
