#147 Officially Suspicious: The Sherman Deaths
On the suspicious deaths of billionaires and crying white girls.
Jesse Brown
Host & Publisher
Kevin Sexton
Producer

Last week, billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman were found dead in their Toronto home. As we parse through language in the press like “suspicious” deaths and “police sources,” what do we know and which interests are at play?

Metro columnist and former CANADALAND employee Vicky Mochama called Lindsay Shepherd a crying white girl on CBC’s Sunday politics show, infuriating an army of people who have probably never seen the show before.

True crime writer and veteran crime reporter James Dubro guest hosts.
