Welcome to Crimetown, a series produced by Marc Smerling and Zac Stuart-Pontier in partnership with Gimlet Media. Each season, we investigate the culture of crime in a different city.

In Season 2, Crimetown heads to the heart of the Rust Belt: Detroit, Michigan. From its heyday as 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.

Excellent

Crimetown is awesome. The use of interviews and primary sources is really impressive. The podcasts are very well produced and move along nicely. Educational and entertaining, while also uncovering real corruption.

A tale of two cities

Season 1 was perfect. It was engaging and it felt personal. The listener felt a love affair with Providence. However, season 2 feels more clinical and there was a lack of emotion from the narrators and interviewers. Also, the theme song does not invoke the spirit of the city or the story being told. Both seasons have great story telling and season 2 is getting better. But, Detroit deserves more humanizing of the people and the city. The fun, the joy, and the pride is not reflected; how this life can be appealing.

One of the absolute best podcast I’ve ever listened to!

I never leave reviews and I’ve listened to podcasts for years before anyone around me knew what a podcast was. This series is what podcasts were built for. The best of the best. Thanks for such in-depth, amazing, smart, strong reporting and storytelling. So interesting, informative and entertaining. Addictive!!! Thank you.
