This is investigative journalism

I am exhausted with the “true crime” podcasts that stretch a story and do no new work. This is journalism and it’s worth your time and support.

Phenomenal!

I finished season one in just two days. This podcast offers an incredible display of investigative journalism, and while it deftly reveals the cracks in our justice system, it managed to leave me with a little hope for our future, if people as smart and fearless and committed as this are on the case. Season one is every bit as captivating as season one of Serial, the Adnan Sayed story, though this local story feels perhaps to have a broader reach. I’m a huge fan and can’t wait to dig in to season two.
