Award-winning podcaster Connie Walker joins Jesse in studio to talk about the problems and racism she faced at the CBC, including the pushback she received when trying to tell stories about Indigenous women.
But that racism and pushback didn’t deter her. During her time at the CBC, she created what is now known as CBC Indigenous. She also created the hit podcast series Missing & Murdered which, despite its success, was canceled after two seasons. She remains committed to telling those stories, making sure that they are more than just footnotes in Canadian history, with her work on the series Stolen, at Gimlet Media, for which she recently won a Pulitzer Prize and a Peabody award.
