Boys Like Me

About the Show

In 2018, a Toronto man drove a van down a busy sidewalk, killing 11 people and injuring many more. He was linked to the "incel" movement, a dark online world fueled by violent misogyny, extreme isolation and perceived rejection. 

In the wake of the attack, Evan Mead discovers a disturbing connection to the perpetrator. They were former high school classmates; both outcasts, existing together on the fringes of social acceptance. 

How did two young men who started in similar circumstances, end up on such drastically different paths?

Hosted by Ellen Chloe Bateman, BOYS LIKE ME is a five-part investigative series that examines how socially-isolated young men can vanish into an online world of nihilism and despair that radicalizes them into angry — potentially deadly — misogynists.
