The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Breakdown podcast returns with hosts Bill Rankin and Christian Boone. In our seventh season, we examine the deadly police shooting of Afghanistan war veteran Anthony Hill. Hill was not only unarmed when he was gunned down in March 2015, he was naked. The 26-year-old was struggling with bipolar disorder and was off his medication. But Police Officer Chip Olsen didn’t know that when he responded to a 911 call about a nude man wandering around a metro Atlanta apartment complex in the middle of the afternoon.

The AJC's Breakdown podcast is just that — the breakdown of the story and the systems. The largest newsroom in the southeast delivers investigations and true crime cases that you cannot find anywhere else.

I enjoyed

This was an intersting podcast. I was looking for something true crime after listening to Serial. I must admit that I skipped season 2 though, as the content wasn't great for me to listen to. I did listen to the first episode of season 2, and just passed over to season 3. And the podcasters voices are great.

Superb!

I'm a devotee of true crime podcasts. This one is among the very best. The writing is crisp, focused and accessible. The main host ( Episode 7 ) has a personable, not over-polished and engaging delivery. Breakdown lacks all of the annoying and amateurish touches that inflict so many lessser efforts; sensationalism, over-dramatic music, long, rambling interviews, blaring commercials, and obvious bias. Breakdown does everything damn near perfectly. Kudos! More!

Our absolute favourite

My girlfriend and I are from Toronto and love listening to this podcast on long drives with hot drinks in hand. We’re always hooked on absolutely everything that happens, and it’s sparked some incredible conversations and debates between us. I would pay subscription fees for this without hesitation. The trailer for this coming fall’s season had us drooling. PLEASE keep it coming, this is the best podcast out there today.
