In which we get together with Paul Gilmartin (comedian and host of The Mental Illness Happy Hour) to discuss childhood abuse, the importance of being part of a community, learning how to be vulnerable, why we minimize our own traumas, and how serial killer stories can be oddly comforting. Plus: Alice opens up about a secret she’s been keeping for almost 3 decades. Then: our delightful things this week include a dog story worth waiting for.
Trigger warnings for talk about sexual abuse/assault, though no graphic depictions are used.
