The bar is high.

By far the most compelling, best produced, and well researched true crime podcast available. A master class in investigative journalism with clear and concise presentation of a complex story. Subscribed.

One of my favorites

I’m a true crime junkie, and some podcasts are just hard to get through. However, the “In the Dark” series is quite the opposite. The journalists exhibit incredible investigative reporting and put years of research into just a few succinct, yet detailed, attention-grabbing episodes. The pressure they put on law enforcement and prosecutors is just as remarkable as the compassion they show to victims and their families. Nothing gets past host and lead reporter Madeleine Baran. If she comes knocking on your door, you better pray you told the truth.
