Outstanding episode on child trafficking

I often hear students speak to “child prostitution” the benefits of legal prostitution and worst of all, prostitution as a “victimless crime.”

I plan to use the episode as a lesson on the problems and issues. My university tends to neglect victimology as a criminal justice perspective.

Well done.

Very informative - but where is the 11th episode?

At the end of episode 10 it says there is going to be another episode (with Dr. Amaya Jackson), is there a plan to actually publish that episode or any additional ones?
