Listen to Episode 28: The Conspiracy of Silence
In this Episode:
Mike Blejer was 11 years old when his au pair started sexually abusing him. After we hear his story, he talks about how common sexual assault is and why survivors are often hesitant to talk about it. The Bartender then shares her own experience with this topic, and why she hasn’t publicly addressed it until recently.
