Tonight's special guests are Bob Brader and Suzanne Bachner from New York City, both survivors. Bob's childhood abuse was at the hands of his father, who was a predator to a number of friends and relatives, too. After Bob finally escaped from his father, he found himself lashing out and abusing alcohol. The long process and practice of writing and telling his own story, and working with prevention organizations, have truly transformed Bob. Suzanne’s sexual abuse started when she was 11 and attacked by two of her trusted peers. The main perpetrator of her sexual abuse was a close family friend. She has been on a long, slow journey of healing and recovery through therapy and through writing about sexuality, power dynamics, intimacy and sexual abuse. The married couple share a lot more in their lives, too. Bob is an actor and writer and Suzanne is a playwright and director. They're a theatrical team who have partnered on many amazing shows together including two award-winning solo shows (written and performed by Bob Brader) called 'Spitting In The Face Of The Devil' and 'Smoker'. Suzanne's job is as his director/developer. "We have toured them internationally and they have been widely acclaimed and won many awards," Suzanne writes. "We have partnered with several prevention organizations to raise funds and awareness as well." We'll hear about efforts they've supported in the past and their plans for the future on tonight's show. We wish them every success and welcome Bob and Suzanne to the NAASCA family !!
