I am taking you back to the 90s to a moment when times seemed simpler. In 1993, Lorena Bobbitt (24), the wife of Marine Veteran, John Wayne Bobbitt (26), decided to take matters into her own hands. She was sick and tired of living under the thumb of her abusive husband. He had slapped her, hit her, verbally abused her, and raped her over and over again. She took a kitchen knife...and well, you'll have to listen to the episode to see how this story ends.
Dig in with Margot as she takes you through a roller coaster of emotions. And listen until the end, because after the final credits, I discuss 2 non-military penis amputation cases that give this one a run for its money!
