Pretty good

Really enjoy this podcast. I am not a fan of Lisa though, she seems incredibly out of place against the others. Her comments and stories are just so dramatic and argumentative and often distract from the actual subject they are discussing.

This was an excellent coverage of sexual abuse issues from manipulation. I learned the words to describe what happened to me as one of the first female prison officers in Michigan.
I had been a homemaker propelled by divorce into my work in a prison. A Lieutenant took advantage of my general innocence and manipulated me ; he was a trusted person. He took my children as hostage so to speak, by promising to help me stay on a shift so my children could stay with me rather than going to their father. When i became disagreeable with his intentions of sex & sexual abuses, realizing how frantic i was feeling and then learning he had not accessed proper channels, he began mobilizing the other male staff against me in disparate ways. He created a tense environment where i was the only female officer. By discrediting me he was removing his own blame of what he was doing to me.
I felt shame because i was not only a well trained prison officer but was law enforcement trained. I just didn’t expect person who was supposed to be trusted to do what he did over time, but then I didn’t know how to frame his influence causing male staff going as far as disclosing personal information to prisoners or officers running into me in the halls. I didn’t know how to speak to the counsellor i found nor recognise he didn’t have a clue either to help me. This was the 1980’s.
Coercive control have become a part of my vernacular now. Those poor children MJ abused is so uncontionable and just knowing how horrible the fallout was as an adult, what it would be for a child breaks my heart.
