Shortcut: Angie's Story: An honest account of sex work and heroin addiction

Australian True Crime

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

Our guest today is Angie. She was a sex worker and drug user for some years and she sustained a brain injury through an unsuccessful suicide attempt, which accounts for her struggle to think of words sometimes.

Angie is one of a kind, as is her wife, Luna, who sat beside her during this recording. And you may hear her chime in from time to time.

We've spoken to sex workers before, but never this explicitly. And when I say explicit, I don't mean sexy. I mean, we're going to be talking about violence and sexual violence in a pretty graphic way at times. It's even going to get gynecological. So if that's something that you are not comfortable with, then this one might not be for you.
