Shocking

An amazing piece of investigative reporting told calmly and forensically. Intense and scary, revealing the weakness in those that are there to protect us, who ultimately abuse children, people and the system and ultimately aid and abet criminals and murders.

Brilliant podcast

Can’t understand why he didn’t win the Private Eye Paul Foot award. Disturbing and absorbing.

Fascinating and horrifying in equal measure

Charles clearly knows his subject matter incredibly well and it shines through in this detailed, absorbing and heartbreaking podcast. Important, intelligent work. I listened to as much as I could in one sitting!
