Episode 5: Inside the Brothels BONUS Episode


Our "Mamas of the Brothels" episode took a lot to pull off. We tell some of the wild, behind-the-scenes stories about how this story about sex worker moms almost fell apart. Executive Producer Sarah Ventre shares how she pulled the story together by "brothel hopping" in a Tony Soprano car.
