Good story, a tad long

Good story overall. This case definitely needs attention. He’s at least guilty of being a serious creep and sexual predator. Not sure how a father of two girls can act this way, callous and calculated.

Cowards

I unsubscribed, I know, who cares. The Australian bowed to pressure from the privileged sector of society that protected Dawson for decades. Like a podcast would somehow prejudice juries... because no other media would cover this right ? Also, calling Dawson “Chris” over and over again the podcast, anything to with being told to humanize him? Chris, like he’s a mate. Why does domestic violence continue to exist in the 21st century? Lots of reasons, the Australian can now count itself among those, who by their cowardice, tacitly support it.

Great story, too repetitive

A fascinating and compelling story, that needed a serious edit. Far too repetitive which is a shame
