The revelation of British paedophile Richard Huckle raping and abusing up to 200 Malaysian children between 2006 and 2014 shocked the nation. In the aftermath of Huckle’s arrest, we spoke to two child rights activists about how we can collectively ensure that such atrocities against children never happen again. We then hear from a scientist who is pioneering a potential treatment for paedophilic disorder, and end by exploring whether chemical castration is a proportional punishment for child rapist. The full interviews as mentioned in this podcast can be found here, here and here.
