This episode features a conversation with writer Christopher Johnston. Chris is a dynamic writer and journalist from the Cleveland area whose work is wide ranging. From writing about and covering human trafficking, medical miracles and serial killers, Chris has some incredible insight you’ll want to hear.

You’ll also want to hear us talk about his upcoming book which is so very timely in the light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The book titled Shattering Silences: New Approaches to Healing Survivors of Rape and Bringing Their Assailants to Justice (Skyhorse Publishing), is the first book to cover new innovative approaches and partnerships that treat sexual assault victims and shows how the people and organizations implementing these new approaches are having far-reaching impacts on helping victims heal and making it more likely that predators will be arrested and sentenced.

Also, for the purposes of this episode and since it’s produced in Cleveland, We wanted to provide the website for the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center (below). To learn more about the important work they are doing and if you live in Northeast Ohio and have been victimized by sexual violence please consider contacting them.

Their 24/7 support hotline is (216) 619-6192.
