    Introducing: SUSPECT

    Introducing: SUSPECT

    A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker? As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later. It’s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.

Season 1. Season 3??

Season 1 was great! I really liked it, I was really interested and I thought everything was done so well.

I listened to the trailer for Suspect, but I can’t find any more episodes. I’m guessing Season 3 is for Suspect, but where is it??

Great storyline bad voice editing

I enjoyed reading the original longform story and was led to the podcast. But right off the bat, the narrator’s voice is sped up from her native speech cadence so much that it’s painful to listen.
I prefer to listen to her voice as she would likely talk and it’s nothing close to the speed you’re hearing

Please do more!!! Season 3,4,5...

Loving every minute of this podcast. So sad there won’t be more seasons to come.
