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.

Amazing

It's incredible how much time and effort they put into investigating the Curtis Flowers case. This is by far the best investigative podcast.
