Episode 35: Karma (last name withheld)


How do you cope when you are convinced your life is constantly in danger as a child?  First, you band together with your siblings and form an army, then you learn about the sweet oblivion of addiciton.  Paul's friend Karma witholds her last name and picture so she can fully reveal the family life that nearly killed her, but ultimately forced her to grow.    A fairly heavy interview so Paul throws in a little something after the interview to hopefully make you laugh.
