Great Series

I have listen to the season 2 twice, this was some great reporting. It was a eye opener about how some DA work.

Season 1 so captivating

So well researched and well done. Have found I’m kind of a picky listener and this is one of the best I’ve ever heard. Each episode is a jaw dropper.

Interesting but Biased

Season 2 is an interesting story and well told but incredibly biased. Even if there was corruption, it is possible that this guy did this (he was found guilty four times after all) but they don’t explore that side of the story at all. And these interviewees are not credible for the purposes of court or this podcast but she goes with whatever they say even if they’ve told three different stories in the past.
