Tonight’s Show: How To Support Friends When They Have Been Abusive

How do we humanize the conversations about people who have committed acts of inter-partner abuse? Host Nancy Kahn, along with guest Jesse Markus opens up a meaningful exploration of how society fails to rehabilitate people with a history of inter-partner abuse.

Tonight’s guest, Jesse Markus, shares personal stories on his history in drug and alcohol recovery; his experiences of being publicly canceled and shamed;  along with his views on this controversial topic that have been informed by his leftist politics, prison abolitionism, and commitment to community and mutual aid. Jesse is collaborating with others to create a burgeoning fellowship for people who are recovering from patterns of abusive behavior.
