STORIES OF THE STALKED, AN AUDIBLE ORIGINAL
STORIES OF THE STALKED is an Audible Original true-crime podcast, produced by VENTURELAND with FEAST COLLECTIVE, written and presented by Lily Baldwin.
In this genre bending series inspired by the uncensored testimony of stalking victims, each story unfolds through a marriage of investigative journalism, radio play and immersive audio by Hana Walker-Brown.
Season One provides an incredible insight into Lily’s personal experience of being stalked over a staggering 13-year period. She recounts her journey of legal challenges, survival techniques, and physical and mental health issues when a stranger, turned stalker, doubles down on a fantasy that they are a couple, destined for marriage. More than just a hopeful suitor, his delusion expands to encompass multiple identities, even multiple languages. Lily also shares the stark realization that the stalking still has not ceased, sharing the steps she’s taken in order to even go public with her story.

““There is something crucial missing from most true-crime podcasts: the voice of the victim. That is not true of Stories of the Stalked, a six-part Audible series from the award-winning filmmaker and dancer Lily Baldwin. Having spent 13 years being stalked, she has written and narrated an immersive series in which illusory sound design transports the listener into the midst of the experience.” - THE GUARDIAN
“...A different sort of work, one that’s both activist as well as containing the emotional complexity of a great literary memoir.” - FILMMAKER MAGAZINE
“With unflinching honesty and candor, Baldwin explains how her life unraveled as she received endless e-mails, calls, and messages from a person she calls X. The series is raw, immersive and harrowing—transporting the listener into the heart of the experience - FORBES
