Dear Katie: Survivor Stories

Nov 30 2023 • 35 mins

“It starts with rolling a stone and getting it tumbling and then building this avalanche. That’s my call to action.”

Blake shares the destructive force of his first sexual experiences; betrayed by the prince of his dreams, he finds himself questioned and doubted by those he reaches out to for help. He is ignored and silenced, drowning in incredible pain, when a chance TV moment sparks his will to survive and speak his truth.

If you are a journalist or an agent of change interested in contacting Blake to answer his call to action, reach out to us at katiekoestner.com.

Hosts: Claire Kaplan and Katie Koestner

Editor: Benter Oluoch

Producers: Emily Wang and Luiza Leite
