IMPACTS Project research assistants Chloe Garcia and Christopher Dietzel make guest appearances in the podcasts. 

Chloe Garcia contributes to the "Taking It All Off" podcast on sexual violence. In this episode, podcast speakers challenge the narrative surrounding sexual violence by providing listeners with alternative solutions to prevention, debunking ever-present misconceptions and challenging the concept of the “the perfect victim” and “victim-blaming”. Podcast guest speakers, focusing on current affairs, discuss how to create healthier communities, address campus sexual violence, and touch-upon key ways to support a survivor/victim.
