Why Is It So Hard To #BelieveSurvivors? w/Ali Safran of @SurvivingTumblr #SAAM — #KatieSpeakShow Ep31 04/02/2016

In brief: April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, so I’m kicking it off with my friend Ali Safran, whose powerful Buzzfeed piece on trauma and memory is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the institutional disbelief of survivors. I’m also replaying my interview with the awesome Kate Harding on her book “Asking For It.”

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
