    Introducing: Harsh Reality - The Story of Miriam Rivera

    Introducing: Harsh Reality - The Story of Miriam Rivera

    It was supposed to be a reality show with a twist. In a sun-drenched villa in Ibiza, six hot guys compete for a cash prize and for the love of the beautiful and mysterious Miriam. It’s meant to be her big break: the moment she becomes the superstar she was born to be. But this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact that Miriam is trans. A new six-episode investigative series from Wondery, the makers of The Shrink Next Door and The Apology Line, and from Novel, HARSH REALITY is the story about love, lies, reality TV and a woman before her time: Miriam Rivera. Written by Agnes Borinsky and hosted by Trace Lysette.

    Lockey Maisonneuve Refuses to Forgive her Abusers

    Darrell Jones on Freedom After 32 Years Behind Bars

    In December 2017, Darrell "Diamond" Jones took his first breath as a free man in 32 years. In 1985, he was convicted of a crime he says he didn't commit. He could have pled guilty for a shorter sentence, but he refused to confess guilt for something he knows he didn't do. We talked to him about surviving a dangerous prison and committing his life to making sure other innocent men end up in jail like he did.

    LINKS!

    You wouldn't be hearing Darrell's story without reporting from WBUR and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.

Season 1 Episode 4

Great episode. The poem was poignant and well written.
I do think it’s sad that none of the host’s friends could come get her when she had her accident. Honestly appalled. With friends like these...
Anyway, I hope she has since gained a new set of friends.

Horrible!

Have to pay to listen

Rigged spin wheel ,

To more compassion who wrote humans aka feelings

What gives anyone the power or right? Idk about power but the first amendment gives us all the right. It’s called freedom get over it. Everything is a decision. Just like people “choose” to listen and “choose” to write reviews the same as people “choose” to read the reviews after sharing an experience. It’s all choices so don’t think your virtue signaling smack down is any different. What gives you the right to condemn people that write reviews you don’t like? Is it okay for you to bag on people because you think you ride a virtuous white horse? Check your ignorant logic because it is very flawed and contradictory
