Incredibly haunting but necessary podcast

A million trigger warnings with this one as it covers very very heavy topics. Was in tears most of the time but it is important to know about what happens in the world. Well researched, well produced. Probably my favourite podcast and I have recommended it time and time again to people who have enjoyed (although enjoyed just doesn’t sound like the right word)
