For the past 20 years, Mia's guest has been the voice for over a thousand victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.

Right now, Lisa Flynn is representing the father of one of the choir boys who was sexually abused by George Pell at the age of 13. This boy’s young life was never the same and “R,” as he’s been known throughout the trial, withdrew from his family and began taking drugs very soon after the abuse happened.

She joins Mia now to talk about all of it....
