Cast Away

This series focuses on a woman’s experiences with unsuccesful rejections, and offers a patchwork of answers to two main questions: Why is it so hard to say ’no’ to a sexual advance and why is it so hard for some people to respect. The audio is delightfully varied, and includes excerpts from the woman's - Kaitlin's - teen diary, interviews with her friends, ex-boyfriends and parents, messages from listeners, a terrible Elvis song called 'Don't', a really clever sex therapist, and a re-enactment of one of the assaults she’s experienced as well as a tape recording of another. Due to the topic alone, the podcast can be uncomfortable to hear at times, but the result is a deeply reflected and universally relevant story about personal boundaries and integrity.
