Other Storytellers?

Loving this podcast. But every story seems to be told by someone who is now an author or playwright telling their story of family trauma/secrets - don’t forget to check out their book, etc. Would love some “average Joes” telling their stories, please.

What about the working class with trauma?

As a historian, genealogist, and trauma/c-ptsd survivor I love this show but I have to agree with some of the other reviews in that it lacks diversity. I find myself relating to the person up until a point. Most come a background of extreme privilege and have endless resources, time, help at their hands to help them navigate the horror of trauma where as the rest of us have to navigate it while working endless hours, finding a provider who takes health insurance, waiting 6 months for an appointment, and on and on and on. Navigating this world for working class people is absolutely the worst. Now I understand why so many poor people are addicts... the system fails so many who even try and get help.
Why not do at least some episodes that we can relate to?

Lack of diversity

I like the concept but the show needs more diversity in the stories. Does every episode have to be about a Jewish family from greater New York?
