Season 2 Harris case

OMG ... I can not think of the name of the podcast that led me to this one, but the Harris Case is the one I came to hear. First of all this podcast is so so well done and fascinating !! BUT It has just made me so SO mad on SO many levels! Our criminal justice system is just set up to win at all cost....NOT to find justice. I mean Harris is easy to dislike but that does not mean he murdered his own child. This made me so angry and so sad. ESPECIALLY for Lyanna, but also for Ross. I hope and pray there is some significant change in our system! I can’t wait to hear more seasons.

Phenomenally well crafted

Each season is extraordinarily well done. Not sure whether to call it true crime, or investigative journalism, or court reporting, but one of my favorite podcasts ever

Season 6 !!!

Couldn’t ask for a better reporting then this. This Podcast is like TV to the ears.
As it give enough description to let the brain fill the gaps with my own creation. Great job keep it coming
