Deon and his team have created something of rear beauty from remarkable pain. An absolute triumph. Thank you for this gift to humanity.

Shining Light into the Darkness

Brave podcast telling a hard-to-hear story in a compelling way.
It can’t be easy to delve into these dark recesses but it needs doing.
EVERYONE should listen to this podcast.

HeatherHat ,

The world needs more Deons!

Thank-you for such a brave, compelling podcast! And I can’t say enough about your incredible writing/storytelling talent. It’s a rare human that can take something tragic and hurtful… and turn it into a creative masterpiece of bravery - not only in what you say/write… but also in what you DO! Thank-you for ripping up the pretty carpet and exposing the muck that hides beneath!
