EPISODE 123: SOLD IN AMERICA

Sex trafficking doesn’t seem like something that affects many of our lives. But when you factor in online users, that number explodes. So when laws started to pass to get rid of this type of trafficking, I was like, “HOORAY! These women are safe now!” But I may have spoken too soon. The series, SOLD IN AMERICA, takes an extremely personal look at what it’s like to have your body sold for money in this country and it will no doubt challenge your ideas of what is actually safe and what is actually dangerous. We’ll get into all this and more today on Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts. Gina Grad and Teresa Strasser welcome you to the show!

This week’s featured podcast is Sold in America.  Sold in America is an eight-episode journey into the world of selling sex in the United States. Hosted by journalist and activist Noor Tagouri, this deeply personal, deeply reported series takes listeners across the country to meet the human faces of this billion-dollar trade – and uncovers its surprising misconceptions.
