Chuckie has returned with a new episode of the HC Pod.

The episode begins with a trigger warning from Chuckie who informs the viewers that this episode contains content that may be distressing for some viewers, adding that the conversation is a powerful one.

He then introduces this week’s special guest, Shamsa, who is a female genital mutilation (FGM) survivor. Shamsa begins by explaining what FGM is, as well as its assumed origins, before she describes the abuse she suffered as a child. We also hear about the important work Shamsa does now, such as public speaking and training authorities on FGM and honour-based violence.

At the end of the video, Chuckie describes the discussion as “the most powerful conversation” he’s ever had on the HC Pod and you can watch the insightful chat between him and Shamsa above.
