A Source Much Needed
I recently began my journey into diving deep listening to this podcast, & can I say that wow Dr. Sandra and Dave Stachowiak are amazing podcasters. I just finished listening to the "White Ribbon Against Pornography" with blend of emotions(none positive, just positively hoping to decreasing trafficking %). Porn does a lot in making human trafficking more difficult to tackle and eliminate. I consider it the new drug that people must be aware of! It's no joke but a crisis on the rise. I appreciate the work and focus that gets put into each episode you produce and the guest that you bring on to the show are also a great benefit to the show. I at times feel guilty listening to this podcast because I feel powerless to help people in these situations, but I must put my learnings to test and be an effective citizen in helping our society remove that plague, which is the sickness of trafficking. Again, I want to thank Vanguard Profs Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak for this illusive mind capturing podcast.
