How do you take down a criminal network that’s hidden in the shadows? How do you rescue child abuse victims who could be anywhere in the world? Hunting Warhead follows the journalists and police on a global mission to expose the darkest corners of the internet. What they discover shocks them. Host Daemon Fairless tracks down the investigators, survivors and criminals themselves. A co-production of CBC Podcasts and the Norwegian newspaper VG.
Brainwashed investigates the CIA’s covert mind control experiments – from the Cold War and MKULTRA to the so-called War on Terror. It’s the story of how a renowned psychiatrist used his unwitting patients as human guinea pigs at a Montreal hospital, and the ripple effects on survivors, their families, and thousands of other people around the world. It also examines the cultural impact — how the CIA brought LSD to America and inadvertently created counterculture influencers such as author Ken Kessey and poet Allen Ginsberg. It’s an exploration of what happens in times of fear, when the military and medicine collide. And what happens when the survivors fight back.

Introducing: Recall: How to Start a Revolution
The 1950s & 60s saw a wave of radical movements. Che Guevara and the Cuban Revolution. The Black Panthers. Quebec and Canada had the FLQ — a showdown that dissolved into crisis. By October 1970, there were soldiers in the streets, communities on edge, kidnapping and terror in the headlines. But those frightening weeks were just the crescendo of a wave of terror and violence that was nearly a decade in the making. This series will reveal the stories of that time through immersive storytelling and the people who lived it: the bomb disposal expert on defusing live explosives, the survivors of terror, their families, and the radicals themselves.

Disturbing, important and very interesting!
I binged it
I listen to a lot of true crime podcasts, and this is one of the highest quality podcasts I’ve come across. The subject matter is tough to listen to, but it is such an important topic. Children deserve that we listen and learn, so that we can work on preventing abuse and making the world (real life and online) a safer place.
I binged. It’s a story that starts as one thing, then spirals. The investigation, the drama and trauma, the dillemmas, the people involved... to sum it up: heartbraking, enraging and eye opening. Yes, the main theme is child abuse. NOT something to be ignorant about or naively shy away from if you actually want to know some of the world’s darker sides.
