Declarations of Resistance

4 – First Responders

WYSW Hosts December 4, 2019


In this week’s episode of What’s Your Safe Word? we are missing one half of our hosting team, but Shelleena is joined by Amanda, Nicole, and Karia to discuss First Responders. The team explores what this term means for us outside of the context of emergency services, and shares some of their own declarations of truth. But first, as usual, our team checks in with our successes and gratitude.

**TW**Due to the nature of the explicit content discussed during this episode, we would also like to offer a trigger warning, as our conversations involve graphic discussions surrounding sexual assault. Please only listen if you feel you have the capacity to do so, and if while listening you feel you need help, please reach out to your local supports.

This week we’re drinking Tawse Spark Brut Sparking. We gave this wine a buzz rating of 4.2/5.
