We also hear some theories as to why certain people might push back against the release of such lists. And we hear from a local deacon about why he thinks the church should talk about the crisis openly. There's another why we learn about, too — why some people in power abuse children in the first place. READ MORE

Astounding story needs to be shared around the world

This is a story that I could not stop listening to because it tells the story of every woman- each of us has lived through rape culture. This is a “go-to” share to help people “get” what it’s like to live in America as a woman- we are still fighting to be recognized as citizens, fighting for the equal rights amendment to make discrimination illegal, we are paid less, harassed and assaulted in the daily. The strength shown by this woman’s story is beyond belief. I’m so proud of her and it gives me strength to keep supporting all the women and LGBTQ folks I know who have been raped, assaulted, and emotionally abused by cis men. THANK YOU.

Fake news

Are we sure that Melanie Peacock isn’t actually Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Omg they sound just alike and appears to gaslight just as much. Love this podcast.
