Great seeing into a different world.
I've been a fan of Audacia Ray for years
I've been a fan of Audacia Ray for years. I was happy to find this podcast. It is short enough that you can listen and not be bored. The topics are real and often hilarious. The story from modern day sex workers are compelling and always interesting. Not all of her stories are from women either. If you're reading this then listen to one podcast. You'll probably subscribe.
Nothing Like It Anywhere
Audacia Ray has really put together a great monthly event in New York City. How awesome is it that this well-produced podcast exists to share it with the world. These stories are not 'hot' -- if that's the kind of entertainment you're looking for, look elsewhere. Rather, these are true stories of the rawest kind: sometimes tragic, sometimes hilarious, but always illuminating.
