"We were sitting at the kitchen table doing homework and she just came in and slapped me across the face."

Episode 62:

This week we're straight talking childhood abuse with "Cody". Triggered by the death of her grandfather, Cody was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. She tells us about being groomed (which she learned about from the podcast), her experience of sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather, the physical abuse she endured from her grandmother, the eating disorders that developed later in life and the immense difficulty she faced trying to be hospitalised when she was suicidal.

Allan is proper riled by people abusing pub staff for needing a Covid certificate and liking themselves to Jews in the Holocaust while Kamron lays low on the smiles this week after having two last week - balance!
