    Fabrication

    If you knock on enough doors, eventually one will open. Tireless investigators trace the infected blood from the arms of people with haemophilia back to the room where it all began – in that American prison.

    Experimentation

    Medicine is a game of risk, and few have seen the cost of getting it wrong as clearly as one group of boys. Whispers, a terrifying newspaper headline and then a stark message: a deadly virus is in their school.

Excellent podcast, heart breaking.

Should we really trust the police?

What an incredible podcast. Stories straight from those involved of women living normal lives who were taken advantage of by the police. And with no real purpose other than information gathering. And it’s almost certainly still happening.
An eye-opening, jaw-dropping podcast which shines a light on some despicable police practices that are still happening today. And going unpunished. Very highly recommended.

Incredible story, after listening to the whole of series 2 I’m still reeling! Can’t believe this was allowed to happen here and the victims have been waiting so long for justice. I hope this podcast helps speed up the answers they deserve. Well done Cara
