Dear Men,

Please listen to this episode about consent and rape culture.

Hugh, Ryan & Josh x

On the face of it, this Academy of Imperfection with Chanel Contos may seem like a heavy episode. An episode about consent, rape culture and sexual violence might not seem like an episode that concerns you. That may be true, but if the #MeToo movement taught us anything, it’s that you probably know someone who’s either been raped or sexually assaulted in some way.

We have a lot to learn about consent, and we owe it to the women in our lives to listen to Chanel Contos.
