Ep 26 - Where the Crawdads Sing: Wading Through the Marshes of #metoo

Join us as we get our feet wet in the North Carolina marshes to discuss this adaptation of the popular novel. Guests Jamie Lewis Holt and Shelby Thayne help us discuss how we might use Kya's experiences with Tate and Chase to talk about warning signs of dating violence with our teenagers and young adults. Is Kya justified in seeking justice outside the system when there's little hope it will protect her? Plus Jamie turns our rating system into a hilarious extended analogy that you won't want to miss.
