MeToo when you wear the uniform – Sexual assault in the military – Ep 4.0

Ep 4 is here.  Hope you enjoy it.

I did want to make a note for people about SGT Johnson, the SF soldier who died in Niger back in October.  I said his name a number of times in this episode and I’m pretty sure most of them were SGT La Johnson.  His name is SGT La David Johnson and I apologize for not saying his name correctly.  I have memory issues and sometimes things don’t get out quite right.  But, a person’s name is an important thing and I aim to do it right.

We are starting a bonus program for anyone contributing to $3+ to us on Patreon!  There will be bonus podcast content not shown on ordinary episodes, original writings from Danny and myself, some collaborations with other creators and some other surprises we have cooked up.  Stay tuned!
