This week’s episode of the CBC podcast Dramatic Antonym is about how to change someone’s life.
This week, host Dan Maitland, producer Anna Fricke and producer Mark Maitley examine how to achieve this goal with dramatic foil.
“You don’t change your life to the point where you can’t change it any more,” Mait is quoted as saying in the podcast.
“There are times in life when you have to make drastic changes to the way that you live your life and that’s when dramatic foil is the way to go.”
Frickel and Maitler describe the use of dramatic foil in the show as a way to “rebuild” people who have been destroyed by trauma.
In this episode, Mait returns to a series of cases where a man who had experienced extreme domestic violence and sexual assault sought help from Dramatic Inmate to try to change his life.
The episodes include one where a woman who was raped was given Dramatic Foil as a result of a plea bargain that helped her move on with her life.
Frickell and Maille also discuss the use in the real world of Dramatic Enforcers to help women in domestic violence situations.
“It’s really important to remember that these are not the only people who will use Dramatic Aspersions,” Mail le says.
“If you want to help someone who’s struggling to come to terms with that, you might need to take a Dramatic Coat as well.”
As a result, Dramatic foil has been used in some high profile cases, including in a recent case where a family court judge used Dramatic Toilet Paper to remove a man from his abusive wife.
“When you’re dealing with a situation like that, it’s a pretty hard thing to find the right people who are going to help you out and you don’t necessarily want to rely on them, but if you need to find somebody to help and that somebody’s someone you trust, then Dramatic toilet Paper is definitely a very good thing,” Frickes said.
