We continue our talk with Professor Joan Meier who appeared in the HBO Docuseries "Allen v Farrow". She explains how "Parental Alienation" was used in the custody case against Mia Farrow and how common that tactic is in Family Court. It is important to note that Woody Allen has denied all allegations against him and he has never been charged nor convicted of any crime.

Trigger warning: This episode will contain clips from the PBS docuseries "Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories" which Prof. Meier also appeared in. There are explicit descriptions of child sex abuse that are very disturbing. Please be warned. The clips will be heard when we come out of our ad breaks.
