    Part Nine of our December 17th - International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers series. 

    In August 2018 Donna Dalton-Castleberry was shot to death by a man pretending to be heading a prostitution sting. In an ironic twist, her killer was in fact a 30-year veteran of the Columbus, OH police department - one under investigation at the time for this exact scam.

    38. Remembering Maxine Showers

    Part Eight of our December 17th - International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers series. 

    On September 27th, 2015 a 42 year old working mother went out on a call to see a client. Maxine Showers of Liverpool, England left for work and never came home. Her murder alleged he'd punched her when she tried to rob him, and that she left of her own accord. But the coroner's report would tell a very different story.

Thank you!

The stories in this podcast are all too familiar for so many of us and I believe they help re-humanize sex workers to any listener unfamiliar or those who objectify us. Each one of us has led such roller coaster lives and have all come to this lifestyle in such captivating ways.
