In this true crime episode, Sadie takes Gavri'el through the story of Andrea Yates, a woman who in 2001 admitted to drowning her five children in a bathtub. While many others have covered this story, Sadie's personal experiences with fundamentalism and her insight into the appalling lack of mental health care for Andrea provide a new lens through which to to examine this horrible tragedy. They then discuss the culpability of Andrea's husband, Rusty Yates, and the influence of fire-and-brimstone street preacher Michael Woroniecki over the Yates family. Sadie finishes the episode with some inspirational words and advice.

This episode contains discussion of the murder of five children, postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis, guilt and shame spirals,
