Hello everyone and welcome to The Crime Times podcast, a true-crime podcast where we talk about anything and everything to do with crime. This week we will be speaking about the recent incidents that have taken place in and outside TTC stations this month, the pushing, the stabbing, and the robbing. The Kartik Vasudevs case is also included briefly because we recently posted a podcast about his case.

The podcast is below and a link to both interviews we include and the video of the TTC pushing, this can be disturbing to some viewers and we strongly encourage your discretion in viewing. We play a clip of the victim explaining what happens so you do not need to watch the clip.
