    S2E5 - A Family Matter

    This episode is a bit different.
    It's a letter to the many listeners who have written to me about their homes, their families and the secrets they hold.
    They've told me how lonely it can be, to not see 'their story' anywhere.
    If that's you, I hope you feel less alone hearing this. Your story matters and so do you.

Violet glitter kitty ,

A brave and astounding insight

This podcast is riveting, well produced and sensitively approaches deeply troubling and often times heart breaking subject matter. Camille is bold, brave and impacting endemic, long term and almost entirely invisible abuse of our vulnerable young peoples. Thank you for this. Her courage in creating this podcast has real time and hopefully long lastingly positive impacts. Brilliant!

LincKym ,

Thank you!

I can’t believe so much abuse was swept under the rug, thank you Camille for bringing it to light. I loved the mix of interviews, quotes and stories. Zoe’s story in particular was heartbreaking to hear, I am glad her family spoke up for her.

Jess the Chippy ,

Shocking story that needs to be told!

Good on you Camille for shedding some light on the truly horrific events. I was outraged and disgusted by the actions of the nurse but to find out there was a ring of pedophiles and the way they operated had my jaw on the floor whilst listening! These people need to be held accountable and this story needs to be told, thank you to everyone speaking up and speaking out!
