Welcome to A Date With Darkness Podcast. This podcast is dedicated to those who have been hurt by love and abuse, through their relationships with narcissistic people. The purpose of the podcast is to deepen the understanding of hurtful and traumatic relationships which have been a source of unspoken pain and trauma. In the episodes, I will be chatting with various experts in various fields to provide education, tips, resources, and information for those who are survivors of abusive relationships. I will combine my expertise of forensics, domestic violence, and work in various mental health fields to have an intimate discussion with you about abusive relationships, characteristics of dangerous and manipulative people, how to move beyond the victim role, learn to love and heal from the wounds of toxic relationships. If you have a question about the podcast or you want to get in touch with me directly, please feel free to email me at adatewithdarkness@gmail.com. Thank you so much for listening!

Dr. Donna Oriowo, PhD, a longtime friend of A Date With Darkness and owner of Annod Right, and I discussed the Lovers and Friends Podcast episode titled I Baby My Man. This podcast set the internet abuzz as it was controversial. If you have not heard this podcast, be sure to check it out as it is the reference point for this episode. In it, the guest Ms. Jasmin Brown stated that her relationship is one in which she is submissive to her man all the time. Dr. Donna and I debate whether what she describes is true submission, or is it abuse.
