Well done & well researched

I have only listened to season 2, but this podcast is so well researched. It’s one of those podcasts that will make you unbelievably angry at the law system as well as people in general. Hopefully, Curtis Flowers will FINALLY get a fair trial and then he will FINALLY be free after 20+ years of a racist prosecutor, juries, and judge.

Hmm

Good until she starts defending sex offenders. I’m confused.

One if best podcasts I’ve listened to!

A friend told me to listen to season 2 of this podcast and I’ve been hooked. I am so impressed by the through investigation these reporters conducted. Living in a liberal state myself, it is easy to forget that states like Mississippi still have racial issues that would be appalling in other areas of the country. I have never donated to a podcast before and I listen to a lot of them, but the impact these reporters made not just in this case, but also the way all of its listeners may view our legal system is important. So, I donated and I hope other listeners will as well so that this kind of impact can continue to be made and this work is rewarded.
