Well done and interesting but....

...it’s turning sex trade into entertainment in some way, but I guess it’s a way to raise awareness?
I hope victims will hear and find a way out. Also, it would be nice if there was a website that you can write to.

A bit of a let down

I agree with some of the other reviewer’s that this should be really hard-hitting topic. However I feel like the reporter frequently asked subjects close ended questions that do not elicit robust responses. Additionally I feel like the reporter feels uncomfortable talking about some of the topics and that comes through in the podcast. Finally I think that some of the examples tow a dangerous line between wanting to see a problem when there is not one there. For example the doctor in Kentucky she said she sawA girl who had issues with STDs and had previously had an abortion and would not look her in the eye she says she assumes now that this girl was being trafficked for sex we have no way of knowing that and it did not seem like there was true science behind the training that was being provided.

Disappointed

This podcast is more about prostitution and making it legal. I’m sorry but I do not believe in prostitution there are other opportunities out there. Every Walmart I know is hiring
