Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Silent Waves tells one true story led by 25 year old Raquel O’Brien, as she attempts to liberate herself from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and a father with a dark secret. To do so, she has raw, honest and open conversations with her family about the cataclysmic circumstances of their story for the first time... and all on tape. What emerges is a larger story as her previously fractured family, emboldened by being interviewed, find the freedom to confront their conflicting versions of the events and reconcile with it and each other. SILENT WAVES is produced by Raquel O'Brien and Georgina Savage in partnership with Nearly Media.

Thank you for sharing your family story in such an honest and open way. Without going into detail, this podcast came to me at such the right time. It made me stop and think of the fallout and the number of those affected by not just abuse but suicide. Again, thank you for sharing - blessings to you and your family.


I found my mouth opening up and saying “wow” at so many things. Unexpected turns and powerful story telling. I absolutely loved this true, emotional story.

This show is phenomenal

Incredible personal storytelling, bookened with helpful expert research. I can't say enough good things about this show. If you like This American Life or any other 'classic' storytelling show, please give this one a try!
