DEValleyGirl ,

Great episode that everyone should hear.

Just listened to the “Married my abuser” episode with Leslie Morgan Steiner. I sadly related way to much to Leslie’s story. Too many women live in shame and silence. There is no shame and silence only gives the abuser more power.

Thank you so much for sharing this, Jill! I just subscribed.

Movie Girl Extraordinarie ,

Loved the first episode!

Reminds me of my own experiences in my 20’s and so glad women are speaking up finally. It it about time. The show also has humor and I can’t wait to hear more! The trailer mentions a gender flip episode and excited for that one.

Love that M.S. ,

New Feminist

Thank you for bringing this issue to the surface and for casting a light on the perpetrators of these heinous acts! I hope justice will prevail
