Season 2...gave me goosebumps. This is the first True Crime story, to ever do that. Very well done. I couldn’t stop listening. What you did for this family and bringing awareness (I don’t want to spoil anything!) 👏🏻👏🏻
A tragic experiment on human beings. This land belonged to Native Indians, who had whole lives and families before governments surrounded them without including them.
I am disgusted by the way we treat people, our own people, who share a country are a world with us.
Connie Walker is amazing.
This podcast was very good. I liked that it wasn’t just a reporter talking - it was interviews, scenes, people, places and educational. It all made a difference. I had never heard of the 60s scoop before and was very saddened and after listening to this entire podcast I began researching it more. I listened to them as quickly as I could and found myself thinking about this case a lot.
