Matilda and the Asylum

Matilda Cutler escapes Ararat Asylum with a terrible story she is desperate to share. Can one woman change the system?

Join David and Tom as they explore the grim history of the Ararat Asylum.

N.B. this episode contains direct examples of abuse in care occurring across the last 100 years in Victoria. Listeners may find this material distressing. The language used in the period covered to describe people with disability is now highly offensive. Direct quotes retain the use of these terms because they are revealing of past attitudes and understandings of intellectual disability.
