In today's first ever 'Raise Your Glass' Bonus Episode of the Raise Your Hand Motherhood Podcast, I'm joined by my very good friend (and European 'neighbour') Bri Nigro - she's a Canadian mama living in Sweden with her partner and 13-year-old daughter.

We've shared a LOT of the same experiences over the years - listen in as we discuss living abroad, raising bilingual children, parenting in a different culture, relationship dynamic changes post-baby, staying true to yourself as a mom, becoming a mother in your 20s vs. in your 30s, and a little bit about our pregnancy and postpartum experiences...and join us as we raise our (beer) glasses to some of the friends and family that have helped us throughout our motherhood journeys so far!

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. 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. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
