    Introducing Crimetown, Season 2

    Introducing Crimetown, Season 2

    From the same team behind The Ballad of Billy Balls comes Crimetown, Season 2.
    This season, Crimetown heads to Detroit, Michigan. From its heyday as the Motor City to its rebirth as the Brooklyn of the Midwest, Detroit’s history reflects a series of issues that strike at the heart of American identity: race, poverty, policing, loss of industry, the war on drugs, and our universal desire for a savior. Detroit’s a tough town, and its residents are even tougher. They’ve weathered riots, a drug epidemic, political scandal, and innumerable other hardships, but they’re still here—and they have stories to tell.

Beautiful narrative

One of the most compelling podcasts out there, thanks in part to the music, editing, and featured personalities, but most of all because of narrator iO Tillett Wright whose captivating voice (I don’t mean the sound of his voice, which is lovely, but the stylistic voice he uses to thread the story) and obvious adoration for his mother make this podcast my current obsession. I keep recommending it to everyone.

Compeling stuff

Asides from the gripping subject matter the show has great editing, audio production & a fantastic soundtrack.
