Podcast: Can I tell you a secret?

This week I’ve been listening to an excellent podcast by The Guardian. Can I tell you a secret tells the story of a man who stalked and terrorized at least 62 women online over an eleven-year period. In January 2022, Matthew Hardy was finally imprisoned for destroying the lives of his victims by hacking their social media accounts, creating fake profiles to impersonate them online, spreading scandalous lies, and stalking them day and night, in some cases, for years.

Investigative journalist, Sirin Kale, interviews several of Matthew Hardy’s victims, his neighbours, a police officer that was instrumental in bringing him to justice, and his mother at length. Can I tell you a secret is fascinating and chilling. I have so much to say about it that I don’t know where to start, so instead, I’ve decided just to encourage other people to listen to it for themselves.
