Synopsis: This week on "Learn Me Something," Aaron and Rich delve into the highway of tears, which refers to a 724 km length of Yellowhead Highway 16 in British Columbia, Canada where many women (mostly Indigenous) have disappeared or been found murdered. The Highway of Tears is part of a larger, national crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. In 2015, the federal government launched a national inquiry into these cases.
