Introducing... Hoaxed: a sneak preview

Introducing... Hoaxed: a sneak preview

Introducing... Hoaxed, the new series from Alexi Mostrous and Tortoise. In 2014, two children told police a shocking story: that they were being abused by a Satanic cult; a cult headed by their father and by parents and teachers at their school in the wealthy London suburb of Hampstead. The story was a lie. But on the internet, that didn't matter.  Hoaxed is an investigation into one of Britain's most serious-ever conspiracy theories. A story about a modern-day Satanic panic; about the victims whose lives were destroyed and about the conspiracists who spread the lie around the world. Oh, and it's about our hunt for the perpetrators - the people who forced the kids to lie - the ones who started it all.  Here's a sneak preview of episode one, to find it follow the link: https://podfollow.com/hoaxed To access the first three episodes now subscribe to Tortoise+ on Apple Podcasts or join Tortoise as a member.
