Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan

Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan

The Parent Footprint Podcast with Dr. Dan Peters aims to build a community of parents who are inspired to raise healthy, confident, and self-aware children who are engaged in life and contribute positively to the world. The show’s guiding principle is that raising healthy children starts with a parent's self examination of the experiences and beliefs that influence their parenting, and that helping children reach their own potential begins with a parent’s aspiration - and ability - to reach their own. Dynamic, passionate, and inspiring, Dr. Dan and his guests will discuss diverse and timely parenting topics and each episode teach listeners how to sculpt their best and most authentic “Parent Footprint."

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
