Highway of Tears
- A True Story of Racism, Indifference and the Pursuit of Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
- Written by: Jessica McDiarmid
- Narrated by: Emily Nixon
- Length: 9 hrs and 57 mins
For decades, Indigenous women and girls have gone missing or been found murdered along an isolated stretch of highway in northwestern British Columbia. The highway is known as the Highway of Tears, and it has come to symbolize a national crisis. Highway of Tears is a piercing exploration of our ongoing failure to provide justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and testament to their families and communities' unwavering determination to find it.

I could not stop listening to Highway of Tears. Should be mandatory reading in all Canadian schools and Emily Nixon's voice is perfect for this. Thank you to Jessica McDiarmid for telling the story of the Highway and it's victims in the most compelling way.
