    Season 1 - LAW: The Military Turns its Back on Victims of Sexual Assault

    Andy and Katie open one of their client files to expose an injustice that has occurred. Their client, a spouse of a military member, was sexually assaulted by her official Air Force assigned sponsor when she first moved overseas to be with her husband. She helped the Air Force convict him and send him to jail, but now they refuse to provide her and financial or medical benefits. The military is quietly stonewalling victims of sexual assault even when the sexual assault happened under its watch. https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/08/01/an-airmans-wife-was-sexually-assaulted-by-their-air-force-sponsor-now-shes-fighting-to-change-the-system/

    #466: Russell Brand | Part 1

    Russell Brand has been known as many things over the past twenty years: outrageous stand up comedian, BBC shock jock, football blogger, provocative host of Big Brother UK spinoffs, author of several excruciatingly candid memoirs detailing his many addictions, Hollywood actor, ubiquitous guest on talk show circuits, host of award ceremonies and more recently podcaster of his own idiosyncratic autodidacticisms. 

    Adding to that list according to the joint investigative journalism by Channel 4 Dispatches, the Times and The Sunday Times, is alleged serial rapist and sexual abuser. Though Brand has denied all allegations of wrongdoing, several women have now gone on record with these news outlets both in print and in a stunning documentary “Russell Brand: In Plain Sight” recounting horrific predatory behavior, grooming and coercive control in extreme detail.

    Join us as we discuss each victim’s account and Laura and Jim highlight what they see in his behavior. You can read about the allegations in the links below and watch a portion of the Dispatches program. NOTE TRIGGER WARNING: please exercise caution when reading or viewing material about this case.

    Rape / Sexual Violence

    Rape  /  Sexual Violence
    The statistics are that someone is raped in the United States every 2 minutes. Most people who are raped are between 17 and 64 years of age. Some of the victims are men, but most are female. Rape is a violent crime that can devastate a person mentally, physically and spiritually. If you are a victim of rape, it is essential that you get help immediately. Reporting the crime is part of reclaiming your power, and early intervention can help treat the post trauma or PTSD that often occurs after such a violent event sooner. An overlooked aspect of rape is the not talked about taboo of "telling" on the rapist. Most people who are raped are violated by someone they know and speaking the truth can sometimes get denied for the sake of not rocking the family boat. This denial of the truth can do much more damage to the victim because now they must also deal with betrayal and repression. Through early intervention through therapy the rape victim can fully express their anger, hurt, shame and guilt and deal with any feelings that may involve self-blame and fault. It's not their fault!
