Have you ever given the birds and bee’s conversation? Did you feel like you knew what to say?
Melissa and Kathryn from the No Grey Zone podcast are both prosecutors in a special victims unit. When the courts closed due to COVID-19, they found an opportunity to start something new. To help and serve the victims they fought for before the crime was committed. They are essentially putting themselves out of a job.
