FAVS FROM THE ARCHIVES: THE TRAUMA CLEANER PART 1 /SHOW NOTES

Sandra is like a cat that has nine lives. There are so many chapters of this story we had to share it over two episodes.

Sandra grew up as Peter and through his life he was many things: He became a father, a husband, a woman, a drag artist, a prostitute, a drug addict, a law abiding citizen, a married woman, one of Melbourne's high society, a business owner, a widow and a trauma cleaner.

As you can imagine this is a hell of a ride. It is a story that has a lot of explicit and adult content.

It is almost unbelievable that one person can fit so much into one lifetime but she did and it's fascinating.

Content warning: this episode deals with prostitution, drugs and abuse. If you are suffering or are triggered by the themes of this podcast, help services are available.
