Way too much content that's catered to wannabe journalists and writers in the GTA.

More podcast series like Thunder Bay and Dynasties please. Less podcast series that are aimed for Toronto journalists. We get way too much Canadaland produced content that is about the media business.

such an amazing podcast! I don't know how it took me so long to find it, maybe cuz we really don't talk about indigenous people's issues enough!

Ive lived between B.C. and the yukon in small towns for all of my life. Sadly these stories are all too common. In whitehorse, where i grew up, there are so many parralells to thunder bay it blows me away... If the creator of this podcast reads this, thank you for taking the time to tell these stories... too many just like them are never told. And the monsters continue to walk in plain sight.

More purveyors of the climate scam. I love in Ontario and I want more pipelines. All the solutions to the hysteria are cheap, easy and simple to implement.

that ex cop really needs to stop laughing when talking about KNOWING these underage sex trafficked workers and what was happening. I don't care if it's a nervous laugh or whatever. He is disgusting. I wonder if he would be laughing if they were talking about his daughter, or if he would have let it all happen if it was one of his daughters. This podcast is so good but I haven't listened to a podcast like this in a long time that makes me feel so sad, angry and a whole lot of disbelief that people can treat vulnerable people this way, even though I live in Australia and know what happens to our own indigenous Australians. I really hope that this all coming out can make some sort of change in that town and for the people who live there. This is hurting my heart. People need more kindness. now I'm starting to sound like a total hippy, I'm not, but I don't think I've been so affected by a podcast before.

I am so ashamed and embarrassed for the town of Thunder Bay, it’s absolutely disgusting how people can treat indigenous people. If you’re from Thunder Bay you should be embarrassed and disgusted with yourself and town! Thank you for bringing this to the attention of the outside world!
