An important case to highlight.

I do truly believe, especially with the mask dna, that this most definitely seems like a miscarriage of justice. I’m glad a podcast has been made about this important case.

I did give it a 4 rather than a 5 because of the podcast style, though. I know that podcasts are generally seen as more informal and that is generally a good thing... Except when you’re dealing with a serious issue where the repercussions are ongoing.

So the wording seemed weirdly casual in the scripted portions ... As if they went out of their way to try and dumb it down. It felt a bit patronizing and also distracted me from the content. (Ex. Using the word “crappy”. It just feels like a word that you would use to try and get a point across to a 12 year old.)

It also felt a bit patronizing when they would continuously repeat how horrible the case was... I just wished they had left more room for the facts to speak for themselves. The repetition didn’t add anything of value to the podcast.

Keep pressing on

God bless you for delving into this case that clearly involves a wrongful conviction. The GBI and that jerk Hill ought to be very ashamed of themselves. They ought to step aside and get jobs in another line of work. What a bunch. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!

Compelling and addictive!

Very well researched and produced. This story is heartbreaking but needs to be heard as wrongful convictions, especially against black and indigenous folks, happen all too often.
