Good case but needs serious editing

This podcast is at times painfully detailed and purses rabbit holes that don’t actually add that much to the larger story and focus of the case. These reporters are clearly very knowledgeable and great a chasing a story but consciousness is not their strong skill.

Brilliant

Honestly, In The Dark is one of the best investigative episodic podcasts, and definitely one of my favorites. The amount of time and thorough research put into both seasons is mind-blowing. If the outcome of Season 2’s case doesn’t change with so much new information, I would be shocked. I LOVE this podcast. Great job!! So worth listening to both seasons!
