Today's guest, Jennifer Lee, shares how she had the feeling of safety shattered in a robbery. It was a long journey of almost two years before she could begin the process of rebuilding it. We often take that feeling for granted, whether it be in our home or out in public; as she says, it's hard to explain what it feels like. But that is what her stories all have in common. They all know that feeling and can relate, knowing they are not alone.
Jennifer's podcast, I Need Blue, shares stories from robbery to domestic violence to understanding self-defense. She explores any topic which causes fear and share resources to overcome the trauma. These stories are also coupled with a supportive law enforcement format.
