Spotify and Gimlet Media have released the trailer for journalist Connie Walker’s upcoming true-crime podcast, Stolen: The Search for Jermain, which will premiere March 1st.

The eight-episode series will center around the mysterious disappearance of Jermain Charlo, an indigenous woman, who went missing in 2018 after going out to a bar one night in Missoula, Montana. As a synopsis reads, the show will find Walker conducting her investigation “in real-time tracking down leads through the dense mountains of the Flathead Reservation, all while examining what it means to be an Indigenous woman in America, as Jermain was.”

The trailer for Stolen teases a complex and frustrating web that envelops Jermain’s disappearance: Various voices wonder not only what happened to Jermain, but whether the official investigation moved at a glacial pace because she was indigenous. Meanwhile, other voices touch on how indigenous women are at disproportionately high risk for violence, a fact Walker — who is Cree from Okanese First Nation in Canada — hopes to bring greater awareness to with the series, per a release.

In 2018, Walker helmed the acclaimed CBC investigative podcast, Finding Cleo, which explored the disappearance of Cleopatra Semaganis Nicotine, a 9-year-old who went missing from her Saskatchewan First Nations community.
