One of the hottest - yet most chilling - podcasts of the year is 'My Mother's Murder', an investigation into the assassination of Maltese investigative journalist and anti-corruption activist Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017.
The four-part podcast series was created by slow journalism news organisation Tortoise. The story is all the more poignant as it is told by the late journalist's own son, Paul Caruana Galizia
The podcast reveals the circumstances of her life leading up to her assasination and the ongoing aftermath following the recent arrest of Yorgen Fenech in connection to the murder.
A journalist himself, now working as financial editor for Tortoise, Paul talks to us about what it is like to confront the dark details of a story when you are personally and emotionally invested in it and the importance of keeping his mother's legacy alive.
