Only start if you've loads of time!

I loved this podcast...am I allowed to say that about something so sad? You know what I mean! I listened to episode after episode one after the other. Well researched and well told. Very interesting but sad story. Really looking forward to the next season.

Excellent investigative journalism.

I loved this podcast! I'm a huge true-crime fan and so have listened to a lot of podcasts in this genre. But Accused stayed impartial, unbiased and sympathetic to the case. It's evident the journalists were fighting for justice.
