Makes you think

This podcast and the investigative journalism definitely makes you think.

Well done.

Incredible investigative reporting

The in depth factual reporting on the Gangster Capitalism podcast is among the best ‘journalism’ out there! The Jerry Falwell series was nothing short of incredible investigative reporting with dogged intent. The way they supported and helped the victims thru the emotional turmoil of coming forward was absolutely the best of truth and empathy.
