In 2015, five young people were arrested for smuggling cocaine into Australia. They had a common connection: Slava P, a music editor at VICE Canada. At the time of the bust, Slava was silent. But years later, he decided to sit down and tell us everything. CANADALAND senior producer Kasia Mychajlowycz has turned those conversations, and subsequent reporting, into our new investigative series, Cool Mules. Kasia talks with Jesse about how the story came together, the ethics of giving Slava a platform and what it all says about the media.
