106: The Crime Analyst | Ep 106 | The Los Angeles Harvey Weinstein Trial with Louise Godbold, Part 1

Laura interviews Louise Godbold, a survivor of Harvey Weinstein who came forward in October 2017. By this time, Louise had already been a trauma specialist for nearly a decade and is the executive director of the non-profit Echo. Echo provides trauma and resilience training for families, communities and professionals and organizations. 

We discuss the LA trial, which has received little media attention, including the tactics used by Weinstein’s defense team. We also breakdown the defense’s strategy and how it mirrors the perpetrator’s behaviour.

We spotlight the tired and worn-out narrative that women who disclose sexual abuse are liars and attention seekers who want fame and fortune and where these tropes come from. We also discuss why the term “accuser” should not be used for victims of sexual and domestic along with defense expert Elizabeth Loftus’ damaging ‘false memory’ narrative regarding trauma victims. There’s a lot at stake with this trial. Join us as we unpack all the latest on this case. Listener discretion is advised. We discuss sexual abuse in graphic detail.
