How to run towards the danger with Sarah Polley

Season 1, Ep. 2

How can we confront our own toughest life experiences? And is it wise to do so? In her new book, Run Towards The Danger, filmmaker, writer and activist Sarah Polley examines her own scariest life experiences. 


In this episode, Sarah and I talk about how telling your stories may change your relationships, the radical transformation of motherhood, and having support in place before diving into your past. There’s some heavy stuff in this episode but it’s not without laughs.

How to break the bystander effect with Julie Lalonde

Season 1, Ep. 6
Last fall, a woman was sexually assaulted on public transit in Philadelphia. And there was a ton of social media disbelief – how could other passengers just sit there and not do anything? That’s why I reached out to Julie Lalonde for my podcast. Julie is a women’s rights advocate and public educator, and she’s been teaching bystander intervention for over 10 years.In this episode, Julie gives us life-changing tools for how to react when we witness harmful behaviour, whether it’s violence, hate crimes, catcalling, or online abuse. Ultimately, her tools are about creating safe communities and once I learned them, it changed the way I saw everything. This episode references sexual assault and gender-based violence. Please listen with care. Resources: Assaulted Women’s Helpline in Ontario: 1-866-863-0511OutsideOfTheShadows.ca (Julie’s public service announcement on stalking for survivors and their allies)ShelterSafe.ca (One stop website for all the women's shelters in Canada)PSA for the Stand Up trainingCanadian Women’s FoundationSistering, multi-service agency for at-risk, socially isolated women and trans people in Toronto Anduhyaun, shelter and transitional housing serving Toronto’s Indigenous women and childrenResilience Is Futile: The Life and Death and Life of Julie S.
