“Run, Hide, Repeat” by CBC Podcasts

Summary: Pauline Dakin’s childhood was marked by unexplained events, a sense of unseen menace, and secretive moves to new cities with no warning. When Pauline was a young adult, her mother finally told her what they were running from – organized crime, secret police, and double lives. It was a story so mind-bending, so disturbing, that Pauline’s entire world was turned upside down.

Production Notes: Run Hide Repeat is the story of Pauline’s life on the run, her quest for the truth – and her search for forgiveness. Based on the best-selling 2017 memoir, this powerful 5-part journey spans decades and an entire country — and it will leave listeners questioning what’s real and who they can trust.

Steven’s Notes: What a fascinating story. It needs to be made into a movie. The more details you get, the more it seems so impossible, but true. I absolutely loved this one! I binged it in one day. There are only five episodes, but it could have easily been 15. I may check out the audiobook to get even more details.

Sleep Friendly: This one is pretty interesting, story-wise, but the storytelling style is very friendly for drifting off. Just make sure you rewind and catchup the next morning!
