Sandy

A tragic account - very moved by this account of Sandy’s early life. Hard to reconcile the disregard afforded to him as a child of 10. A shockingly tragic end to his life as well - very sad

So consistently subjective

The two sides of the scale episode showed such a woeful (and dangerous) lack of understanding of family violence. The casual misogyny of this podcast and consistent bias of the presenter is really concerning

A copper turned criminal defence lawyer. An oxymoron to say the least.
