20: FERTILITY FRAUD & THE SEA WAIF: Dr Donald Cline’s 94 kids + sea survivor Terry Jo Duperrault

Hello, Eavesdroppers! This episode is all about True Crime with a twist… But first,  there’s Australian birdlife talk and a few shout outs before we get to the first story: a look at the Netflix documentary Our Father. TRIGGER WARNING & SPOILER ALERT: this episode deals with issues around fertility fraud and artificial insemination as well as documentary spoilers…

How would you react if you found out you weren’t an only child but in fact had 94 half-brothers and sisters? That’s what happened to Jacoba Ballard… and when she began digging into how this could happen, she uncovered a shocking and bizarre legally nebulous situation that includes fraud, lack of consent, genetic cleansing, medical misadventure and more…  Tune in to find out more!

Geordie then discusses the true-crime case of The Sea Waif… In 1961, an 11 year old girl called Terry Jo Duperrault was found in the Providence Channel after spending 84 hours floating on a cork and fishnet dinghy… How did she end up alone on a lift raft? Where were her family? What was captain Julian Harvey’s involvement in all this? Who got murdered? And was Terry Jo protected by a pod of porpoises? Get listening to find out!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode – and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
