Jana's Up in Here ,

Thank you for this much needed podcast

As a survivor, I find it very healing and comforting to be able to hear about topics regarding childhood abuse from amazing survivors of childhood abuse. I absolutely love it. I would like to suggest an episode talking about how memory works when one endured childhood sexual abuse from an early age as it is something I believe would benefit us so much to understand more. Congratulations on your amazing work!!
