    Injustice Files on Clubhouse Featuring Interview with Kwame Shakur and Royal Amos

    In this episode, we feature a Replay from the Clubhouse app in the True Crime Talks Club and the Injustice Files Room featuring the Laundry Diva discussing an interview done by Special Guest Kwame Shakur with his friend, Royal Amos, believed to be wrongfully convicted in the murder of his girlfriend and unborn child. What follows is the playing of the interview and then a discussion with Shakur about what he knows about the subject and his friend, Mr. Amos.

    Stick around for a discussion about laundry history: (http://www.ohea.on.ca/blog/the-brief-history-of-laundry) and some closing remarks.

    Hot Topic: Sexploitation and a Colorado Solution

    Hot Topic: Sexploitation and a Colorado Solution

    Before we get started let me put up a couple of trigger warnings: There will be a frank discussion of sex trafficking and sexual abuse.

    There is also a layer of religious discussion because the topic involves a religious group home.

    With that being said, go get your cuppa! I‘ll wait right here.

    When you get back we’ll sit down with my friend Jacqui Staples who I had the pleasure of interviewing last year about her amazing passion project, Sarah’s Home, a Christ-centered sanctuary for girls who are rescued from sex trafficking.

    Check out the show notes for more details on the topics discussed in this episode and for contact information for the hosts and guests on the Laundry and Other Mysteries podcast:
