The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Breakdown podcast returns with host Bill Rankin. He's covering the murder prosecution of Claud "Tex" McIver, a wealthy and politically connected lawyer in Atlanta who shot his wife in the back. McIver claims it was an accident, and the prosecution has its work cut out for it in trying to prove malice murder. But the defendant took several actions after the shooting that made the community and the cops wonder about his innocence.

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.

Despite one low season, it's still exceptional.

Excellent journalism, peppered with interesting personal insights as well. I wasn't keen on the "jury" season, but the other seasons have been excellent. I was particular stunned by the season on the predatory doctor, who once worked at one of my city's hospitals--it highlighted a critical gap in the medical field that needs to be addressed.

Frustrating

The sequence of the episodes is not clearly indicated. Auto play does not take you from one episode to the next as it does in all the other podcasts I’ve listened to.
I got frustrated and gave up even though the story seemed interesting
