The storytelling isn't that great, and some of the attempts at dramatic floruishes a rubbish, but the examination of how white liberal bias/social media storytelling/disregard for these children's lives added up to tragedy is darkly fascinating. https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/how-stuff-works/broken-harts Racism, child neglect & abuse, homophobic language, murder/suicide Lots of extra content on the Glamour site: https://www.glamour.com/story/broken-harts-glamour-true-crime-podcast-trailer?verso=true Margo

Chat 10 Looks 3 Chat, conversation, cooking, books, Australia, comedy Shamelessly copying a description from Lush Content, but I couldn't write it better myself. This podcast has absolutely zero structure — no opening music, no guests, no guarantee of good audio quality. So what’s the hook? Well, it’s two of Australia’s best-known and most-talented journalists — 730 host Leigh Sales and Kitchen Cabinet’s Annabel Crabb — just having a good old natter about books, recipes, famous people they’ve interviewed, TV shows they love, and whatever comes into their head. It’s really just two besties having a gasbag and letting you listen in. It’s very gentle programming and feels a bit like eavesdropping on your Mum and Mabel from next door when you were a kid, only more hilarious. https://www.chat10looks3.com/podcast Once you have been hooked onto the zany ways of the podcast, join the Chatters in a facebook group for good advice, celebrating wins and lots of laughs.
