On this weeks episode I sit down with Ruth Leonard. Her totally Ruthless videoed have amassed millions of viewers around the world. But behind this very funny persona is a story filled with great sadness and immense bravery.
Ruth talks to me about growing up in Drogheda and how unfortunately your childhood was far from a safe haven as she watched her father violently beat her mother and at just 13 years as of age witnessed a beating that would surely end her mothers life.
We chat through the devastating effects this has had on her not only as a child but as an adult too, We chat through the effects it has had on her relationship with her mother, Siblings, Husband and even her father.
