Dear Alana Widely available, episodes weekly

Podcast of the week

Simon Kent Fung remembers learning about Alana Chen in 2019: “A girl from Boulder, Colorado, who wanted to become a nun, was told to keep a secret, and who died at 24.” In this devastating but sensitive investigative series, he looks at the role conversion therapy played in Alana’s story, after she told her priest that she was attracted to women. It’s a harrowing tale of how a woman Fung never met would turn his life upside down.
