Hooked from episode one. Sounds like a cult, can’t wait to hear the rest!

A must listen for anyone who has heard of the WE charity! So grateful journalists take on these injustices.

The perspective here is a bit tired, frankly, and comes accross as pretty biased. I would check out the What We Lost podcast to get both sides of the story, trust me, it'll change the way you view the entire situation.Read full review »

if this is something that interests you I would suggest checking out the What WE Lost podcast. it specifically addresses a lot of what is discussed here and has a pretty solid counterpoint to this narrative. If you really intend to invest yourself in this story I'd recommend it.Read full review »

This is why I love CL. Substance meets quality and style. Keep investigating
Tide.AL via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/03/22
This whole podcast seems like it was written by a scorned ex. How much can you seriously drone on about WE Charity? And to have an entire podcast dedicated to it? This is hardly a tru crime podcast, most true crime podcasts address OTHER SUBJECTS.

Great podcast!!

These two are really pieces of work. For 10 years I served the UN as a Child Protection in Emergencies (CPiE) Specialist. I worked in Libya, Syria, South Sudan, and the Boko Haram Crisis in Nigeria to name a few places doing family tracing for unaccompanied minor’s and overseeing the...Read full review »

I cannot begin to recommend this series enough. The Charity model had been hurting so many African nations, and while some positive impact may have come out of some, most keep impoverished people poor. Kudos on your in-depth work!
Julz_bindia via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/11/22
Highly recommend. More work to be done with ‘charitiy’ investigations. And so glad that we understand the dysfunction and cultures of a Canadian charity to a better degree.
finntime via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/26/22
An essential listen to understand contemporary politics in Canada.
Annihilus Prime via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 02/06/22
The White Saviors is an absolutely top notch example of investigative journalism. Kudos to Canadaland for this amazing work.

WOW!! Thank you so much for sharing! I can't believe they're still in THOUSANDS of AMERICAN SCHOOLS! 😳Read full review »

I first heard about this story from the main Canadaland podcast, but the details of this investigation were even more aggravating to hear with all the different perspectives. I hope some more legal actions come out of this investigation. Keep up the work Canadaland!
VCan25 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/21/22
Very glad I listened to this podcast as it told the story of “We Charity” from beginning to the so-called end. Yet again proves that if someone or something is too good to be true it is indeed too good to be true!
Podcast-geek via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/17/22
Excellent review of a very suspicious charity. No wonder they left Canada after numerous exposures. Their need to respond with numerous legally inspired retorts is certainly revealing.
akmd via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/08/22
When I first learned about WE years ago the whole thing reeked of a cult of white supremacy. Protect your children from those sleazebag brothers.
t2nt2nt2n via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/17/21
When I was a kid I thought these guys were totally full of it. Other people said I was a jerk. Now we all know what I felt in my gut back then was true. Excellent reporting. Someone give Jesse Brown a Pulitzer.
ahrc via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/14/21
An excellent reminder of why we need to support independent journalism.
buffy911 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/05/21
Well done, great story and to the point message
נגה. via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 12/04/21
Seeing one-off reports in the news is one thing — this in depth coverage of WE business and charity is incredible. Talk about true crime! Incredible greed, manipulation and scandal. Must listen!
Life in Tatters via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/02/21
Amazing podcast, brave journalism. Unravelling deep corruption that was obvious. One of the few places willing to look in to the “untouchable” and unassailable WE charity grifters
rbatra91 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/21/21
This is a mind-blowing exposé of a global charity with so many celebrity endorsements…. And so much grift and fraud. Very good reporting from a small Canadian publication. Worth listening to the full series!
loweryourvoice via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/21
I had never heard of this organization but am so glad to know now since they are still active in the US!
blkcat97 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/21
Eye opening piece
Russian Lena via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/13/21
This podcast is so well done. And a very important topic covered with multiple facets. The sept update is mind blowing to me. Sharing with my family and friends as there are so many more layers to this story than what I realized! Thank you CanadaLand
pegs1153 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/11/21
Really good podcast, I binged in one go. I truly recommend! Very important story that shines light on the scandal of a charity organisation of Canada, as well as the issue of “white saviour” volunteer.
mssunnybeans via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/08/21
I thought I knew the full story but boy was I wrong. This reporting and the storytelling by Olusola Adeogun is really exceptional.
challahback.bailey via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/28/21
An eye opening podcast that gets you hooked and invested in the WE charity scandal. I was incredibly shocked, but also gained new perspective. It is definitely worth a listen!
Hey people hi via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/28/21
I’m a Canadian and I’ve been waiting for soooo long to hear a thorough report on this controversy, and these guys nailed it. Phenomenal job!
megangynell via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/17/21
Just binge listened to this! Very interesting and seemingly thoroughly researched tale of events unfolding over decades. Were it not for the pandemic, these so-called philanthropists would still be unexposed to the world for the crooks they are. It took guts to stand up given these guys given...Read full review »

Provocative and compelling
bam526 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/21
Great series, listened to the whole thing in one day. Glad I heard about it (through an ad on another podcast). Hope they’re able to get the word out, because this story has a more important through line than simply recounting the corrupt and self serving practices of the We Charity and it’s...Read full review »

Listen to this! It’s an incredibly relevant story told with skill and nuance.

Mind blowing. I listened to it all in one day.
jtanns1984 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/06/21
The whole podcast is incredibly illuminating and also so well produced and awesome to listen to. The last episode is especially amazing. Highly, highly recommend!
Aimée C. via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/06/21
I’ve shared this story with so many people who have no idea this was happening.
brittanybabee3 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/02/21
This podcast shed a light on how unscrupulous charities can be. The corruption surrounding them. And what they can get away with right in the open . I want to believe that Kielburger brothers really wanted to “do good.” But greed and fame turned them into just another group of people with...Read full review »

This story was amazing, WE/Free the children brought out the worse in the nonprofit industrial complex (NPIC) here and abroad, thank you Canadaland for doing the necessary researches.
KarineMontreal via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/02/21
Eye opening! Corruption within a “non-profit, charity organization” for children, by children!! WHAT?!!?
RS94 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/30/21
This podcast is probably the best podcast I’ve ever listened too! They authors do a great job of sharing information, connecting stories and bringing in the audience. I couldn’t be more stunned by the story but more impressed with the writing!!
haileebailee123 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/29/21
I had not heard of this organization before, but their brand sounds like a not-science-based-religion-that-has-science-in-their-name cult that’s always in the news!
Shawnanna via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/21
Lies, cupidity and emotional manipulation, the WE Charity story needed to be retold in this format. It’s shocking stuff - all the more because the Brothers K sounded so sincere, so plausible, so idealistic. Well done.
Malburr via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/27/21
Highly recommend listening! This is a story you likely never knew about.
antsofcourse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/21
I was on the edge of my seat for the entirety of this podcast! Great investigative journalism, the writing of Mark/team & Olu, producer, whose voice is PERFECT! Yes, some sections of sound quality (voice mod, phone msgs, etc) were rough, but I need to be a better listener ANYWAY, great job,...Read full review »

What an amazing podcast. It was totally riveting and I learned so much. Can’t wait to hear whatever comes next.

A truly wild story from beginning to end. Fantastic production paired with exceptional journalism. Left with many thoughts and feelings after completing the series but glad to be informed.
