In 1990, Leonard attacked a female hiker off a trail along the California coast. Three decades later, we hear the rest of the story, and explore what accountability and survival really look like.

Warning: This episode contains a graphic description of a sex crime. Some listeners may want to skip this one.

If you or someone you know have been affected by sexual assault, you can get help by calling the National Sexual Assault Helpline at 800.656.HOPE.

What a horrific story, and what a triumph to turn it from its brutal beginnings as a senseless attack into an indirect portrait of such an amazing woman. In the end, the story becomes a tribute to Marah's spirit of kindness in the face of everyone's worst nightmare.
