Jimmy & Nath recently spoke with Tasmanian of the Year, 25 year-old Grace Tame who is a national advocate for survivors of sexual assault and is the first Tasmanian woman to win the right to go public with her story and to self-identify as a rape survivor.
The boys spoke with Grace about her story, elaborating on what exactly grooming is and why it's important for people to identify the signs.
