Morning Magazine on KGNU interviews MESA podcast host, Lindsey Breslin

After a hiatus due to COVID-19 interruptions, a local podcast called Sex: By Invitation Only relaunched this month. The podcast is a product of Moving to End Sexual Assault or the MESA program, the sexual violence resource center for Boulder County. Lindsey Breslin, MESA’s Program Supervisor, originated the podcast, “I think sexual violence is a topic that people shy away from and we want to let people know that while it’s a difficult topic we are trying to present it in a digestible and interesting way so it’s something people can engage with.” (scroll forward to 17:18 for the interview).

This season promises to be different from the last two in a few ways. First, of course, is the write-in option, allowing the cohosts to better interact with their listeners, but they also pledge to end each segment with current local and national stories to help keep people informed and educated, as well as tying in content from MESA’s blog, “tackling hard-hitting topics like oppression and masculinity,” Harris says.
