Not only important... compelling

I want to say this podcast tells an important story from history, and it does... but I don't want it to seem like "you have to eat your vegetables" either. It's a compelling story told well, that also happens to be an important one.

Excellent Podcast

This podcast was excellent. This important story made me both sad & mad. The State of Arkansas should pay for the bodies to be exhumed & the DNA testing. That is the least they can do for these families. Thank you for bringing this story to light.
