Season 2 is the best podcast

I did like season 1 but nothing not even SERIAL season 1 can beat the 2nd season of IN THE DARK.

Brilliant!

When I first started listening, Madeline’s voice was slightly annoying. I didn’t know if I could continue. But the investigative reporting saved it. I have listened to dozens of crime podcast and this is probably one of best. Madeline and her staff have done a brilliant job investigating and reporting. She keeps it professional and stays on topic. Ant stand crime podcasts that interject their own ad-lib. Just the facts m’am.
