Cal and Cathy welcome Dawn Hogue to the podcast to talk about human trafficking. This issue involves all of us: because traffickers use “massage” to cover their illicit businesses, because consumers may be harmed, and because people are being traumatized exploited and manipulated. We have the ability to make a positive change, as you will hear in this episode.
