Taboo Truths and Tales

By Madeira Desouza
Marked as "EXPLICIT" -- This podcast series is called "Taboo Truths and Tales." That's because this podcast series deals with subject matter considered to be taboo; examines a person's perception of truths; explores storytelling tales of fiction intended to be heard and thought about. You need to choose for yourself which you perceive as "truths" versus fictional "tales" because sometimes the distinction between the two is not crystal clear.
