Welcome to Episode 2 of the podcast!
In this podcast, we will be talking about all the subjects that we kind of tip toe around in society. We’re going to chat about the controversial, the censored, and the taboo. I’ve invited guests to talk with me about their most intimate stories, in an effort to demystify these subjects, and humanize their experience.
For this episode, I sat down to talk to Bethanie Garcia. Bethanie is a dear friend that I met through blogging. She lives in Arizona with her husband and four children. Three years ago, her father was arrested for sexual misconduct against a minor and last year he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Bethanie talks to us about the details of what happened and her family dynamic during this time. It’s a compelling story of how she survived the judgment, the shame and the loss of a someone she once trusted.
10 million children have experienced having a parent in prison. Bethanie talks about how we can support children of incarcerated parents and how her mom has dedicated her time to advocating for this cause. Here is a great resource full of ways to support children of incarcerated parents.
