Ep. 4 - The boy who changed Indigenous kids' health care

Jordan River Anderson was five when he died. The boy from Norway House Cree Nation was born with a condition that left him unable to talk, walk, or breathe on his own. And because the provincial and federal government couldn't agree on who should pay for his home care, he spent his whole short life in a hospital. Host Colin Ellis speaks to filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin about her documentary about Jordan's legacy.

Ep. 3 - Can the Catholic church atone for a legacy of abuse?

In 2011, former priest William Hodgson Marshall pleaded guilty to multiple counts of indecent assaults of minors and sexual assault. Matt Gallagher made a documentary about this case, but Prey isn't about what happened before Marshall's conviction: it's about what happened when a survivor took the Congregation of St. Basil to court over its financial settlement. Prey profiles survivors Rod MacLeod and Patrick McMahon. Colin Ellis speaks with Gallagher, MacLeod, and McMahon about the film.
