Thank you David. Thank you thank you thank you. My case file went up against the royal commission. I hadn't said anything yet. I'm not in the middle of a lengthy court case to get justice and I'll always regret that I didn't contact the royal commission before it was too late. Your podcast has already given me great comfort. Thank you ❤️
Staggering and powerful
You need to hear this - but if it raises issues there is support information at the end, so be sure to go to that bit if you need. Incredibly well done and pulls no punches on either the perpetrators of child sexual abuse in Australian institutions or those who covered it up.
Thanks for keeping the spotlight on this issue and the Royal commission.
You're doing the lord's work, keep it up!
