Themes surrounding sexual harassment are discussed in this podcast. Each theme of the episode will be slightly different, and tailored to what the guest feels comfortable talking about. All stories discussed on the podcast have been submitted in the knowledge that they will be read out, with consent for first names to be used, or in some cases anonymous.
Each story is openly discussed with the guest from the point of view of personal experience, bearing in mind everyone's experiences to harassment may differ and no reaction is the same.
