Fascinating podcast

I’ve learnt so much from these amazing episodes. They are so insightful and the depth of detail and research that goes into each of the episodes is amazing!

Once good but now pretty poor ‘journalism’

The initial series of this Podcast was an excellent investigation into a specific criminal case in America. The most recent season however was simply shameful and seemed to serve little use as a properly investigative tool and more as a means for the ‘journalists’ and New York Times to further their political agenda. When even The Guardian is calling you out on your political bias there is a problem.
