This week on Eavesdroppin’, hosts Geordie & Michelle look at the world’s biggest pop star, Britney Spears, and how she ended up in a virtual prison, also known as a conservatorship. In 2008, after a string of public meltdowns, Britney Spears ended up in a conservatorship controlled by her father and co-conservators. She had her rights stripped from her along with her ability to make decisions for herself over everything from her money and work engagements through to her meds and her body. We take a mini-dive into how Britney found herself in a conservatorship and the long road out of her enslavement. Want to know more? You’ll have to listen! So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle plus extra chit chat on Part Chimp, all-round hot guy Al Tegart and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
