Timothy Ballard
Listen to front-line stories from guys rescuing kidnapped children from sex slavery. Yep, that's a thing. Right now, there are over 2 MILLION children being sold and traded for sex. Timothy Ballard has saved hundreds of children himself. Tim left the Department of Homeland Security to start a non-profit, child rescue team, called Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). Hear how they do it? It's candid and visceral. It's not explicit, but it's also not recommended for children.
The Sound of Freedom
A few years ago Alejandro Monteverde started writing a fictional story about child trafficking. Around that time he met Tim Ballard and it caused him to scrap the script... since then he has been finishing "The Sound of Freedom" based on the true story of Tim's journey to where he is now.  Tim and Mark had a sneak preview of a director's cut. Immediately after the film, Mark sat with Alejandro(director and co-writer), Rod Barr (writer), and Brian Scofield (editor) to understand their philosophical and practical approach to telling a rough story so delicately and artfully.  The Sound of Freedom will likely hit screens this coming Spring (2020).

Tim's visit with the President
We've all heard soundbites of White House meetings, but how much behind the scenes have you heard? Well, today that's what we're delivering. Last month Tim Ballard was asked (with not much notice) to meet with President Trump, Ivanka Trump, and leaders of several security agencies to discuss trafficking at the border. We'll also discuss southern border policies that are effecting the well being of children today.  And finally, Tim showed up with a box of surprises, including an unexpected bronze statue... and he's not telling who it is until the end.

Those that are not killed are being trafficked for sex, labor, and organ harvesting. Our guest today, Glenn Beck, has founded an organization that has saved over 11,000 Yazidis and Christians, by funding and executing escape, rescue, and relocation.

If you have listened much at all to the Slave Stealer Podcast you know what a support Glenn Beck has been to the anti trafficking cause over the last few years. A while ago Glenn agreed to narrate a few of these stories for us.  Please help us show the world the light at the end of the tunnel that still shines.  We appreciate the original arrangements of Slave Songs and Civil Rights anthems arranged by Rashida Jordan Call and Kyson Kidd in collaboration with Yahosh Bonner.
