What an amazingly professional and eye opening podcast. The journalists were so inspiring in their relentless commitment to bring such a huge and important topic to the public. The public has never before had access to this level of information nor heard from Nicola herself in regard to this highly public but extremely troubling situation. I have deep compassion for Nicola and hope she has a chance to safely tell her whole story. Well done Rachael, Josie and Yasmin and of course the ABC.

Binge worthy

Stumbled upon this series while looking for something to listen to while I cleaned out the garage and I legit binged both seasons over the weekend.

The podcast is informative and remains unbiased through both seasons. Rachael has got the perfect voice for a podcast, so lovely and soothing.

Absolutely cannot wait for season 3.

A bimbos justification

How she was allowed or let herself to become a mother is the question I’m left asking. That’s got to be a crime everywhere but Victoria
Disgusting attempt at justifying her behaviour, but considering the integrity of the police, the pillar of justice is nothing but a rotten joke and even a royal commission will only make good throne room reading as nothing will be revoked in trials compromised by the gobbler- white bimbo trash - the worst of the worst- another untouchable caste member. Down there with the Victorian police
