The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Breakdown podcast returns with host Bill Rankin. He's covering the murder prosecution of Claud "Tex" McIver, a wealthy and politically connected lawyer in Atlanta who shot his wife in the back. McIver claims it was an accident, and the prosecution has its work cut out for it in trying to prove malice murder. But the defendant took several actions after the shooting that made the community and the cops wonder about his innocence.

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.

Experiential lessons in how our courts really work.

While I had to stop listening to baby Cooper Harris’ horrendous case - too painful- this podcast is very well done, excellent investigative reporting without being snarky or smarmy or giggly like some other True Crime podcasts. Keep up the excellent intelligent work!
