Engrossing, brilliantly written

This podcast is a must-hear for everyone interested in crime and justice. Madeleine Baran is a genius interviewer, always soft spoken and seemingly unobtrusive, but in reality ruthlessly efficacious. Their subjects are super interesting, plus their work has real-life repercussions. After you’ve listened to this, every other podcast pales in comparison! I can’t wait for next season ❤️
