This is so helpful to me! She just talks straight and is so real. I can tell because of my situation. not a sociopath, but a narcissist. She makes me feel validated with my struggle and pain. It's not me!

this ep is absolute bullshit. i kept waiting for the hard-hitting and "on brand" content advertised by the actual podcast description. this made no sense and totally minimised the seriousness of the "rape survivor" angle this season

This mother sounds like a real jerk, but why is the daughter even there? Probably bc her mom's insurance is paying for it? I have 4 daughters. They are amazing people! I never would talk to them like this. The one host does the vocal fry so strongly, it's hard for me to listen to. Just use your normal voice. It has to be better than what you are doing. This podcast is definitely not for me.

Inspiring podcast with great hosts. Subjects are handled respectfully, but with a light touch when tension needs lifting. Some episodes include interviews with experts who give great insight into trauma and issues like institutional betrayal. Can't wait for season two!

I found this podcast amazing. they just keep getting better! I wanted to mention , as a survivor of traumatic brain injury , some interesting things in common. Also, I use to live several doors down from Junior Seau (sp-?). it was an amazingly healing place for myself though. my own brain injury was a result of neurotoxic exposure. the purity of the wind and sea basically put me into remission, and half-cured my dog, who also was exposed. he had a condition that made him get these big benign fatty cysts. both of us were medicated which controlled the progression of illness. our immune systems were able to turn around with the magic of living there. I suppose the smog and daily pollution ,even 2blocks inland as our last home was , didnt help. while damage is similar, perhaps a toxin exposure heals differently( but its effects are system-wide) compared to physical trauma. As spoken, it's so hard to show where it hurts. but in the beginning, a doctor from Wisconsin University, helped us first and then the head of immunology at Stanford. there are places that are ahead of the game and those that go with " the way we've always done things". and very few venture into this territory of the new and Unknown. thank G-d for them.
