During Todd's childhood, his mom mysteriously passed away in a bathtub "accident."  Then, his stepmom also mysteriously passed away from another accident four years later.  Coincidence?  Absolutely not.  His father was an abusive spouse who was found guilty and sentenced to two life sentences in both North Carolina and Pennsylvania.  

Todd is telling the story from the childhood survivor of domestic violence point of view.

Recently, especially during quarantine, a lot of champions have been trapped in their homes with their abusers. And although they don't feel safe or happy, they are afraid to leave due to backlash from their religious establishment. 

I wanted to unpack that, so I invited my friend Pastor Dave, a Southern Baptist Pastor to speak on behalf of his opinions and how he manages abuse within his congregation.

Customs wrestling, an underground wrestling scene, where private viewers can pay to match up a fight, often turns ugly and inappropriate, as you can imagine.  The minimal to zero amount of restriction and oversight by major wrestling companies to protect their wrestlers during these matches really allows for rape culture and coercion to spiral out of control. 

 

Rob, Risa, Jen and I have a panel discussion about why "Customs" are so dangerous to wrestlers and the wrestling community.

Deb McPhilemy is an avid advocate and Champion of marital rape and abuse and has survived and overcome.  Hear her story and know that you can also heal after spousal abuse!

*Explicit Content -- Curse Words*

Matt, a local musician, artist and advocate, is chatting with me today about how the word "sensitive" is associated differently between men and women.  For women, being sensitive is normal, but for men, it is perceived as "weakness."  I want to bury that mindset and rebuild an accepting culture that allows men to express emotions in a healthy way!

Join us for this really interesting conversation :D
