One of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard

One of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard. Do yourself a favour and listen to it.

I’m confused ...

This has such good ratings but the one I listened to was nothing like the reviews described ? It was basically a girl just crying and sharing her abusive story and there was no host ? I hope she has found some peace and support - my heart truly goes out to her. Are all the shows like that ? I guess not what I expected based on the reviews...
