There are not many women who can tell the stories Elizabeth Hudson has to tell. Most like her die young. And if they make it out alive, keep their past a secret. Elizabeth used to work the strolls in Calgary and Vancouver as a heroin-addicted prostitute. On June 23, she takes us into that world.
On the show, we'll air both part one and part two of "Painted Lady," stories Elizabeth and a radio producer from the CBC produced for the award-winning series Outfront. Elizabeth Hudson is also the author of Snow Bodies: One Woman's Life on the Streets.
