The younger we are, the more the stories we are told affect us. So the stories we are told as children are the ones we’ll repeat and propagate in later life.
It seems like these inter-generational cycles of violence and abuse are everywhere, but what of the more subtle traumas we’re subjected to in childhood?
In this episode, let’s discuss the various ways families inevitably fuck each other up!

I love your show! Every episode is a chapter in this storytelling book for adults! I hope to “read” many more chapters.
natural sense of humor you have puts it in a genre of psychology, philosophy and humor.
A true gem!
Thanks Jess, much appreciated!
