The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Breakdown podcast returns with hosts Bill Rankin and Christian Boone. In our seventh season, we examine the deadly police shooting of Afghanistan war veteran Anthony Hill. Hill was not only unarmed when he was gunned down in March 2015, he was naked. The 28-year-old was struggling with bipolar disorder and was off his medication. But Police Officer Chip Olsen didn’t know that when he responded to a 911 call about a nude man wandering around a metro Atlanta apartment complex in the middle of the afternoon.

The AJC's Breakdown podcast is just that — the breakdown of the story and the systems. The largest newsroom in the southeast delivers investigations and true crime cases that you cannot find anywhere else.

Wonderfully Different

This show is cool because it focuses heavily on the way the US criminal justice system operates with each case. The host is a veteran court reporter who knows what he’s talking about, and he’s has a genial demeanor that I really enjoyed.

Each season is very different, going over every aspect of each case in lots of detail and discussing potential “breakdowns” in the justice system, which apply regardless of whether the defendant is guilty or innocent.

This is a different kind of true crime show, and it’s very well done.
