If you’re a baseball fan, chances are you’ve heard of Adam LaRoche. Before the end of his 12-season career in Major League Baseball (MLB), Adam went on a human trafficking sting operation with a non-profit to fight sex trafficking. After being exposed to the ugly underbelly of the sex trafficking industry, Adam decided to make it his life’s mission to fight sexual exploitation. Since his retirement from the MLB, Adam has formed a nonprofit, E3, that in part helps to fight sexual exploitation. He also went on to become a deputy through the Police Academy which allows him to help law enforcement agencies that do counter-trafficking work. Listen to Adam LaRoche open up to podcast host Garrett Jonsson about his personal experience with consuming porn, how he realized that it contributes to the demand for sex trafficking, and how he’s been able to overcome it. Note: This conversation was recorded prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
