Our six episode podcast Unspeakable – Understanding Sexual Crime can be downloaded from Itunes and is available on Soundcloud

Unspeakable challenges preconceived ideas of sexual offending through interviews with victims, their loved ones, specialists and the Victoria Police detectives who managed their investigations. Each episode explores a key theme - reporting, investigating, victim reactions, offender behaviour, online grooming and future directions.
