I just read this one. Engineer. I just wanted to note. I think it's a step in the right direction to discuss the issues of rape on the radio. However, as someone who's 21 I said experiences of a similar nature. I think the way the discussion is being opened up is not very productive for victims. You understand that the police don't really care about historic allegations is not encouraging. We should be focusing on how this happens every day and on how we're going to go about this in the future and how we're going to shift the focus for cases such as Yasmin's, they're extremely common and extremely confronting issues that many women have to face. Mentioning that people should contact Lifeline doesn't really cut it when you're opening the conversation and not offering the echo adequate support in that conversation to says Lauren, which is a really good observation, and, of course, I'm always wondering if it's being done well or properly from doing it right. What I'm trying to do now, much more Lauren that I never did before, is a journalist was, you know to ask those questions that I might ask before I speak to the person which is? Can I ask you about that? Are you comfortable speaking about that? Um, do you want to stop the conversation? I prefer to do that life to hear now so that you can hear and know how the agreement is being made. How the conversation is being head and you can hear the response of the person who's agreed to speak so that you can hear in real time whether they're cross at me, whether they're pushing back at me whether they're irritated or hurt or upset by the questions. I think it's very important that we be transparent about how we do our job. And I'm sure we're not doing it as well as we possibly can. Right now. We can always do better. Johnny Maids thing. Good morning. Hardworking yet just listening to your talk with Jess. And I'm not gonna percent Sure with my history for Alberto, Watch her program. Just a hunk a disgrace to that. Four years ago, I had a long conversation with your predigested John Payne about my experiences of Coming to the brink of that fury. Which sort of just about push me to be violent towards my partner on bond. I guess I'm not About the blind anyone or have things got in my relationship. It was kind of like a bit of a perfect storm in losing my job. And having Being in a position where I was being emotionally and financially abused on our partner on a daily basis. And I kind of got to the point. I told the story to join. I kind of got to the point where I felt Like I was Just about T belong towards my partner. I wanted to do Watching myself out of the half on Dad of the state be on him. Because I kind of felt that I knew that that wasn't the person who I was. And with it, whether we're with this surfaces around them to support you in what you were feeling and going through, John I didn't know. I really did not know. Um and you know, because it was such a slow burn, I guess to Virginia. I didn't really feel like always sort of Like a granted the corners so that it was just that one moment where I felt That's what all that I felt so emasculated itself yours. That's what that's what I wanted to do this 11 what my body felt like it wanted to John. I think it's so interesting that you used the term emasculated there that gets to the point that just Hill was speaking about before about how and individual can can feel when they feel hurt or threatened, and when they can start to see it as a threat to their very Sense of self. John. Thank you for ringing in today and for sharing that story again. Gary's called in from Port Arlington on a different subject. Hi Gary Hart, Virginia and personal Just the same great program today. Thank you. You look three years ago will likely left in a position to build a nice new home and we built it. Deficiencies in mind with hot water insulation, the way the house of sight of them. We also Sean and the puts all the panels on the house. Couple over his contributed some renewable energy back into the system, and also that Help with health energy costume and turning his mind's a difference to any deka. I'm just thinking that if I do go ahead with this playing and a lot of people if they're in a position to do so will simply With a battery system allows stopped exporting pair And, uh, so that claims to be negative chemistry, not in Children. Mm hmm. Wanting to put systems on their houses, I think that will probably just stop the stop people doing that all together. Yeah. Which would be a shame, although I don't know. Maybe they've been banking on the fact that there will be so much renewable energy generated by wind and solar farms. And such successful battery storage that you might not need that domestic trade. I guess so. I think that would be an interesting discussion to have. And as I mentioned before, there are some really interesting market analysts that track this And that using all the daughter that's available right now have quite convincing forecasts about where the energy market is going on. I'd love to see that that maybe this'll fears being struck off the back of predictions that the change the interchange between households all the selling back into the grid from the household is perhaps not going to be needed into the future.
