This time Nick is joined by Vanessa, a forensic psychology doctoral student and one of the hosts of VeganSci podcast. We discuss some of the content we taught in a Criminology unit on victims of crime, focusing on Nils Christie’s ideal victim concept and how it can help in understanding how the legal system, media and community respond to victims of crime. We also discuss: the monster myth, just world theory and what we can to do challenge victim blaming.

Nick also covers content warnings and free speech, as well as Julian Assange breaking his pledge to travel to the United States if whistleblower Chelsea Manning was pardoned.
