"Unbroken: Healing Through Storytelling" features individuals who have all triumphed after adversity and have not just bounced back in life, but forward and are now making a difference for others.
Hosted by Madeleine Black, the show will share stories of all the amazing people Madeleine has met on her own journey as an author/speaker and these stories will heal, motivate, inspire and bring hope when they share their wisdom and knowledge with her.
She really believes in the power that comes when we share our stories, that in fact we are not story tellers but story healers. Tune in to discover what helped them to stay unbroken and together we will discover that none of us are broken beyond repair.
She has her own unusual personal story which she uses to inspire and motivate others. She chose to forgive the two men who gang raped her at thirteen years old.
Her memoir, "Unbroken", was published on April 4th, 2017 and she continues to work as a psychotherapist.
