Episode 64: Believe Survivors Part 1 - Understanding Abuse SEE NOTES
*Trigger Warning - This interview was bumped up in light of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary. @VRFreeny shouted out the podcast on January 5, 2019 just saying for people to check it out. I haven't watched the documentary nor do I plan to. Genie, (this guest) and I had been talking about setting up a recording for after the pending episodes have been posted, but she and I both felt compelled to get together as soon as possible.
Part 1 of this episode helps us understand Genie's abuse. Part 2 is where we see justice served.
