Excellent Product

A must listen done by a very courageous woman!! Keep up the great work!!

No fx ,

Just a white guy

I haven’t listened to every episode. In fact, I stopped listening within the first 5 minutes of the first episode that I downloaded. What Abby is doing is brave and I admire her passion and drive to do what’s right. Covering rape and other atrocities against women has to happen. I can’t hardly believe that it is a thing. And it is so sad that the kind of people who commit such crimes exist. And if reprisal exists against women who report it than sound the horns. But your gonna lose a huge audience when things like “you know what they do to women who speak out about these things” are said. Although the statement is true, women are not the only ones who can’t speak out. That is a huge problem! But those kind of problems with the federal government affect women and men alike. At risk of sounding insensitive, I just get so tired of hearing about discrimination against women all day every day at work. I absolutely will not voluntarily listen to a podcast that shakes that same fist. I’m over it. In my 20 + years in federal fire management, I honestly have not seen the kind of discrimination against women that I’m told happens so often. I’m not saying it’s not there or that it is not harder for women, or that there aren't sick/perverted men out there, or that women have to feel they have something extra to prove (as we all do) but, straight up discrimination? Nope, in fact the opposite is what I’ve seen. I have been directly involved in centralized seasonal hiring since it started. Women are treated like Vets in the hiring process and nearly every female name on the list gets a job offer and I’ve been directed by supervisors to offer jobs to every female regardless of references or merit. I have many amazing female friends in the fire world and most of them hate this charge. Anyway, I would definitely listen to the podcast if it was more inclusive of all of us negatively affected by poor leadership in the federal government. We should be fighting this fight together! Because you know what happens to ”us” when “we” speak out. I’m sure I would probably agree with most of what is said in this podcast but you lost me at hello.
