Maya Angelou once said, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

To do so, she has raw, honest and open conversations with her family about the cataclysmic circumstances of their story for the first time... and all on tape.

The rewriting of our narratives can be painstaking, overwhelming, and terrifying -- taking us with you can be powerful medicine for those who listen as well as tell -- it is brave to own that power -- bravo to you and yours 💚

This story is so touching and its so lovely to hear the closeness this has brought you and your family together. You've all been through a hell of a lot and it's so refreshing to hear the truth about these topics. I feel the pain in it all, knowing how these mixed emotions churn and don't fully settle because you can love someone and hate someone at the same time and going back to the root of it and seeing the same cycle of abuse, its hard to have a conclusion on any belief about a person. You're all incredibly brave and inspiring and you have found a real talent in expressing the life you have lived and I really hope this helps heal a part of your lives that has been traumatic. I can't wait to hear what you have planned next, your podcast is great and I think it'll get even bigger. I'm already recommending it to friends because it's a really valuable story in adulthood, reflecting on childhood and unravelling what you thought was normal at the time and knowing and recognising as an adult, actually what I experienced wasn't a healthy or 'normal' experience. I've definitely been thinking and questioning my life today since listening to this and that's a good thing, so thank you.
