Heartbreaking

Listening to this just after reading “Seven Fallen Feathers” has left me heartbroken. I hope the exposure will force some changes in Thunder Bay and throughout Canada. It is disheartening to hear how little attitudes towards First Nations/Native Americans have changed over the last 100 years.

Stunning

Five episodes that landed like gut punches. I live in MN 5 hours from there. It hit home. Absolutely stunning, funny, unbelievable, shocking and very well-told. One of the best I have ever listened to.
