High Stakes Podcast: What’s Your Name?

Because this is the very first episode of High Stakes, I thought I’d talk a bit about what you should expect. In the coming months, you’ll hear true stories from people like Manmeet Dhoa – a strip of red cloth is all it takes to put her father’s life in danger. Bridget Cann’s act of kindness ends in a state-mandated psychiatrist appointment. And a thousand people were meant to show up. Marsha Shandur is the only one who did.

Today, a true story from Jess Beaulieu. Her choice of a fake name gives her secret powers.
