Difficult subject. Outstanding journalism.

A deep investigation into how three teachers turned predators abused children for decades without being stopped by principals, teachers and therapists who knew. Uncovering details of this troubling but compelling story took painstaking reporting and required victims be treated with great sensitivity. Kudos to Julie Ireton, Kristin Nelson et al.

Some Great journalism!

What a compelling podcast. Couldn’t help but binge-listen this one. Julie Ireton is a skilled journalist and the care she took with the survivors of this terrible abuse is commendable. While the story itself is disturbing. The way it was unfolded to the listener was done using the utmost respect. Well balanced and very thorough. Great work representing the survivors of such terrible injustices.

Excellent investigation

Investigation about sexual abuse at an Ottawa area high school that spanned decades! Brave adults shared their stories that serve as a cautionary tale for parents of school-aged kids and uplifting current day advocacy efforts by survivors. Thank you for sharing these stories.
