Definitely a Podcast to Listen too!

Bringing from the first episode, and I’m already hooked! It’s very interesting to hear our stories from Canada. Very easy to listen to and they share a respectful approach to each story!

Engaging & Respectful

I can’t recommend this podcast enough. The hosts are so respectful of the victims and families involved. They tell the stories in an engaging way while keeping the victims in the forefront. They also have great ads.

Great podcast coming out of BC

This is a fantastic podcast that really digs into local Canadian crime and brings light and recognition to its victims not the perpetrators. Thank you for covering areas that the local news outlets fail to cover.
