Great Jib Ladies

Hi there Kat and Ashley,

Tonights podcast episode was very disturbing however, I feel very positive about you sharing this with your listeners.

Domestic Violence is on the rise. Victims need to know there is help out there.
Just ‘Say Something’ to Someone before it is too late!

Bay Area Turning Point is a wonderful organization and has helped so many women for a lot of years.

Thanks for sharing this horrific story.
May he be caught very soon.

Thanks for your weekly Podcast. I enjoy them all.
