Madeleine Baran for Sheriff!

Loved Season 1 and looking forward to Season 2. For season 1, I was worried that knowing Danny Heinrich had confessed would make the entire series anticlimactic. It wasn't. Madeleine Baran's careful investigation and very-well-produced reports are riveting analysis to and absolutely heart-breaking. I did not expect that it would also provide a lens to look at the context of child abduction crimes and our response to it in the US. Thank you for the fantastic podcast.
