Shut Down Pornhub! Feat. Helen Taylor

 

Today’s episode shines light on the global entity of Pornhub – the largest purveyor of user-generated porn in the world. Helen Taylor, Director of Outreach and Intervention for Exodus Cry, unpacks the problems with the site, which has been under fire for hosting content that promotes and profits from the real rape and abuse of women and children. She explains how this has become a trafficking hub, feeding demand of progressively violent sexual acts all under the guise of being a philanthropic org who cares.

Helen then shares about the call to action her organization Exodus Cry has taken after hearing so many real accounts of exploitation, named “traffickinghub.”

She and her associates are calling for Pornhub to be held responsible for hosting such horrific, damaging content in which one 15-year-old victim said “gave her a life sentence.”

Operation Underground Railroad Feat. Garry McIntosh

 

We are joined by Garry McIntosh, Director of Donor Relations for Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), an organization that exists to rescue children from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation and has already rescued over 4,000 victims and assisted in the arrests of 2,300 traffickers around the globe.

Garry talks about the unique origins of O.U.R., which was started by former Homeland Security Special Agent Tim Ballard, who left his post to lead an elite squad of former US law enforcement officers on missions to hunt down human traffickers and bring them to justice by partnering alongside local law enforcement.

In addition to providing extensive training for law enforcement by providing digital forensics technology, intelligence sharing and special investigative tools – one of O.U.R.’s core strengths rests in the value it places on aftercare for victims.
