Season 3

As an Australian, I’ve found this season to be an absolutely fascinating look into the American criminal justice system. It’s a little biased towards the defendants’ narratives, but still incredibly insightful in bringing to light contemporary issues in the justice system.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the podcast about Abnan Syed until I got to the Rumours episode. What the hell is the presenter thinking about in this episode?? Using totally subjective information and views, all of which seem totally unrelated to the case, the presenter paints a horrific picture of Adnan where he is given no opportunity to refute these allegations. The one time he is allowed to speak in this episode he is horrified by what the presenter is doing and feels rightly betrayed and shocked. She says she agrees with him and then just continues anyway. Get your act together; this episode is a disgrace and is tacky sensationalist journalism at its worst. This episode ruined the rest of the podcast for me, so hence the one star.

Must listen

This is the most even-handed true crime I’ve listened to. Shocking injustice and corruption.
