Season 3, Episode 4: Whisper of Fear: The True Story of the Prosecutor Who Stalks the Stalkers

Season #3

It’s definitely an unlovely truth that any one of us can become a victim of a stalker, and the crime is much more widespread than you might think. An estimated 6 to 7.5 MILLION people are stalked each year in the U.S. and my guess is that due to the nature of the crime it’s likely very underreported, so those numbers are probably quite a bit higher. 

Prosecutor Rhonda B. Saunders has prosecuted criminals who stalked celebrities, as well as people like you and me, who, for reasons only known to the stalker, chose them as the object of their evil intentions. Her book, “Whisper of Fear: The True Story of the Prosecutor Who Stalks the Stalkers,” shares stories of how she developed the legal weapons to fight stalking. She even gives her thoughts on what’s going on in the minds of stalkers, and in my favorite section, she gives lots of resources on how you can protect yourself and those you love against these people who invade their lives.

The hosts of the podcast “Strictly Stalking,” Jake Deptula and Jaimie Beebe, join us this week to share what they’ve learned as they went from being entertainers who also advocate to being advocates who are also very entertaining.
