Incredible

This is a truly incredible podcast, in every way that word is used. Season 2 is perhaps the best season of a podcast I’ve ever heard. Investigative journalism at its finest without an agenda or seeking to prove an already chosen conclusion. I cried several times, and I hope Curtis Flowers will be freed.

My favorite podcast! The very best!

Found this podcast searching for shows about Mississippi. As a new resident I was just curious. Season 2 is my personal favorite and I literally can hardly wait for each new episode! I started with serial a few months ago (which hooked me!) this one is just as incredible if not better. Articulate reporting, so thoroughly informative, I am never left with questions; yet the content and its delivery draws you in with a subtle dramatic undertone. Madeline is a powerful storyteller with a simplistic style. She features Interviews and media clips and other voices added throughout - excellent production and sound quality. Thank you APM for this. Hope there’s another season!!! By the way; free Curtis!

Maybe she needs to go be a cop

If the narrator is so awesome at police work maybe she needs to put on a vest and put her money where her mouth is. Nothing worse than someone who isn’t in a career to tell other how to do it. I’m all about accountability and progress, but that doesn’t come from some millennial with a microphone.
