Red X Podcast exists to raise awareness of human trafficking in North America and empower everyday people to work with their local municipalities to create a safe place for citizens, a hostile environment for criminals, and a second chance for survivors.

Host, Nicole Bernard, is the director of Second Life North Carolina. Nicole is the mother of four. She initially learned about human trafficking on the international scale but discovered that trafficking was happening in her own community about five years ago. Nicole served Transforming Hope Ministries, which has now merged with Second Life North Carolina.

Producer and Engineer, Lance Olive, is the Mayor of Apex, NC and host of the Apex Roundup Podcast. He knows that the topic of human trafficking can be massive and that attending conferences or seminars can leave us overwhelmed and wondering what can be done. His goal is to produce a show that helps the listener to be able to approach the topic of trafficking in “bite sizes” so that you can easily introduce the issue to friends, family, neighbors and co-workers easily and encourage action at a local level. We bring new episodes every couple of weeks that include news, interviews with experts (law enforcement, policy makers, investigators, survivors, foundations and more) to help provide deep insight into how human trafficking has thrived in North America so we can all work together to find ways to stop it for good.

Our hope is that you not only listen, but also provide us feedback and tips that we can share in future episodes.

We sincerely thank you for being a part of this podcast!

LRDwashington ,

Thank you for this important show

I have learned so much from listening to Red X. Human trafficking is a major problem in the modern world, in the US and beyond. Thank goodness Nicole and Lance are helping to shed light in the darkness. I am more equipped to understand where and how it occurs (sex and labor slavery), the complicated and tough road for survivors, the incredible orgs doing amazing work to end it, and why raising awareness is so important for ALL of us. Well done, both of you.
