season 4


Using Your Words To Heal

In this episode, Dawn is joined by Ali Millar, author and journalist. Ali and Dawn share a history in common, both being brought up in the Jehovah’s Witness cult, just a few miles apart in the beautiful town of Edinburgh, Scotland. The journey Ali took to use her words as a path to healing and freedom was moving and inspiring to witness and we invite you to listen into this emotional and heartwarming conversation.

Ali’s first book, The Last Days: a memoir of faith, desire and freedom was released to critical acclaim in 2022 by Penguin Random House.

This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the incredible damage done to families and individuals who are brought up within high control religious systems, and at the same time a celebration of the human spirit to always find a way to express itself, use its voice and be set free.

Her debut novel, Ava Anna Ada, is forthcoming from White Rabbit in 2024. Half Scottish, half South African, she lives in London.

Buy Ali’s book at all good book shops, Amazon or on Audible.
