DISCLAIMER: Not for children, trigger warning on sexual assault. Please listen with caution.
We’ve been asked a lot in the last week on our thoughts about Andy Gross’s performance at Purdue University. Here’s a BONUS pod for the week, where we discuss the Purdue performance, how we can react, and how to avoid becoming an infamous hashtag. Ask yourself: what kind of hug is your act?
Not many of our episodes will exclude listeners. However, as this episode is about a sensitive subject and topics of conversation could be a trigger or things you’d prefer your child not to hear yet, please listen with caution. Thank you!
