It's a heavy news week as Jess and Charlie discuss this week's Four Corners investigation into missing and murdered Indigenous women. The show revealed an epidemic of violence in Australia and yet the news media's response has been muted. They also cover the media response to the killing of 15-year old Cassius Turvey and the #justiceforcassius campaign on social media. Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners are warned that this episode contains the names of deceased persons.
