Humanity’s legacy of stories and storytelling is the most precious we have. All wisdom is in our stories.

Where our stories are told, others can unfold. The MST Podcast features hopeful conversations with survivors of military sexual trauma (MST).  Because there is a direct connection between storytelling, compassion, empathy, and healing, MST also stands for My Story Told.  Through stories we connect, we understand, and we heal.  Specifically, through stories of hope and possibility we can also inspire other veterans and trauma survivors to shift from surviving to thriving.  Our guests lead by example, they speak up about their trauma, and they reveal that what works in their lives just might work for others.  We think it’s our duty to listen and learn.
