About this Episode

Why is America so fascinated with young missing White women? The latest news headlines are saturated with the case of Gabby Petito. In reality more young Black and Indigenous women go missing at a statistically higher rate every year. We discuss the "Missing White Woman Syndrome" and the discrepancy between missing person cases and how it upholds white supremacy.
