Very in-depth

Your podcast gives so much detail and backstory of the families that brings it home. I love that you have episodes in Cree as well.

Good podcast episode

Checked out one episode about a local unsolved murder (Tanya Brooks), I really like the format and the narrator has a great voice. I may listen to the others now.

Heartbreaking

Such a tragedy in my city. I have said this before and I’ll say it again, CFS is a complete disaster . There have been numerous children that have died under their watch and all that happens is one more enquiry. Change never comes
