Serial investigative journalism from APM Reports, with host Madeleine Baran and a team of reporters. In Season 1, we looked at the abduction of Jacob Wetterling in rural Minnesota and the accountability of sheriffs in solving crime. In Season 2, we examined the case of Curtis Flowers, who has been tried six times for the same crime. He's won appeal after appeal, but every time, prosecutor Doug Evans just tries the case again.

Differences between seasons 1 and 2

What I loved about season 1 was that this went beyond the story, using it as a launchpad to raise questions about the system, showcase policy and dilemmas etc.
Season 2 is a lot more of a “true crime” podcast. It doesn’t really attempt to go much past this specific (heart wrenching) case and I think that’s a real shame. Hopefully season 3 will return to the scope-widening of season 1?
