Heartbreakingly, it was this calm approach which led to the most harrowing ordeal of Shelagh's life, when a man stalked her for nearly 2 years. In 2017, Shelagh began to notice the same face appearing in crowds, on the tube, outside her work. She dismissed it at first, but then the appearances became more and more frequent and noticeable - he was there when she met friends, when she travelled across London, at her local train station, and even when he followed her home.??The Followers is a 5-part LBC podcast series where Shelagh talks about the disturbing stages she went through during her stalking: dismissing it, fearing it, and feeling powerless as she was forced to live a limited life.

  • Rich and Varied - well researched & entertaining

    John Sweeney is good to listen to, self-deprecating and it’s enjoyable to listen to the backstory of Robert Maxwell - which gets darker as the episodes progress. More in depth than the usual salacious Epstein/Maxwell narrative.

  • "You can feel sorry for someone, and still want them to face justice.” An impassioned investigation into Ghislaine Maxwell's life and her role procuring young girls for Jeffrey Epstein. A horrible topic, but sensitively and thoroughly explored, with Sweeney's bluntness providing a welcome counterpoint from the ongoing grimness. Recommended.
