GIRLBOSS, INTERRUPTED

GIRLBOSS, INTERRUPTED

This is a conversation for women who find themselves alienated, frustrated, or confused by a culture that tells us our womanhood is fungible. Whether it’s the corporate world encouraging you to freeze your eggs or the people around you encouraging you to behave like a man in even more sensitive areas of life, this podcast seeks to understand better ways of being women. Listen as host Helen Roy explores the reality and possibilities of modern womanhood in this age of dysphoria, detraction, and distraction.

Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused.
