Very moving!

I am so amazed at the depth and listening Cheryl has for herself and her guests. Sharing heavy information in a way that educates and keeps you listening is a skill. Her resilience and passion come through and are really inspiring. Thank you for being a guiding light 💡

Boring

Interesting topic, genuine caring, but not well done.

RiskGal ,

Hooked

I listen to this Podcast the moment it drops. Cheryl is teaching ordinary folks about the horrors of sex trafficking in ways we never thought possible. Not only does she educate in a riveting way she shows how you can help if you want. Amazing stories of survival and strength. Please drop some more Eps.
