    Why are lonely, young men a growing threat to our safety? In 2018, a Toronto man drove a van down a busy sidewalk, killing 11 people and injuring many more.

In the wake of the attack, Evan Mead discovers a disturbing connection to the perpetrator.

Binge worthy but victim blaming

The host sharing all the criticisms of the whistle blower, as well as the interrogation of them in Episode 7 was very hard to listen to.
