In her groundbreaking CBC podcast, Missing & Murdered, investigative journalist Connie Walker elevated the true crime genre to new creative heights, applying meticulous reporting and gripping, long-form storytelling to unforgettable portraits of Indigenous history and systemic racism in Canada. In this intimate master class, Connie joins the award-winning Anishinaabe author and journalist Tanya Talaga, host of the Seven Truths podcast on Audible, to discuss her editorial process, her highly anticipated new investigative series for Gimlet Media, and using the podcast medium to amplify the stories of women of colour who have been erased from history.

In conversation with award-winning Anishinaabe writer and journalist Tanya Talaga. A columnist with The Globe and Mail, she is the author of the national bestsellers Seven Fallen Feathers and host of the Audible podcast, Seven Truths.
