This question is at the center of this week’s show—and we welcome guest Eden Boudreau to share about what we risk—and gain—when we dare to write those truths. Eden’s memoir centers a story of sexual assault, so listeners please know that coming in.

This is a heartfelt conversation—and an episode that celebrates how memoirs really do save lives.
