Season 3: The Wire of podcasts

I’m a huge true crime podcast junkie, and it all started here. Season 1 put the podcast - and true crime podcasts in general - on the map as a popular form of entertainment. And for good reason, it was truly compelling journalism. Season 2 managed to top that, running parallel to Bowe Bergdahl’s trial. But Season 3, an expose on the failures of the criminal justice system itself, is probably one of the most important podcasts out there now. Lots of people apparently don’t like feeling uncomfortable and have made their displeasure clear with their negative reviews, but this just goes to show how far we are from a truly just criminal justice system in America. If we can’t even admit how broken the system is, and how race plays a big part in that brokenness, how is anything going to be improved??

Undecided

I heard about this podcast through Crime Junkie for Season 1. I think Sara did a good job telling the story, but by the end I was just frustrated. It seems as if Sara has some kind of romantic and emotional connection towards Adnon. It really skews the podcast and genuinely disrespects Hae’s family. I think she gets lost in how “nice of a guy” he is that she over romanticizes a killer. It’s frustrating that she continuously defends him. The story is good, but by the end it’s like listening to a love struck reported. 3 stars bc I enjoyed it, but Sara completely disregards Hae, hwr death and the respect to her family
