Sensitive exploration of a complex story

I appreciated the nuanced approach the reporting team took to understanding the story and tracing its resonance today from its roots 25 years ago. The sound design and mixing evoke the slowly building crisis chillingly, but without sensationalizing it. By the end, you really empathize with the victims and can better imagine how any of us could become vulnerable to deception and abuse.

English lens enhances American reflection

A very provocotive lens which adds insight to this American blemish....totally binge worthy!

Great reporting

Very well produced and the story is told at a pace that keeps it interesting and includes many different voices of people involved with this tragedy.
