Season 1 is Great!

Have only listened to all of season 1. I loved it. Would recommend to any and everyone. Good story telling, unbiased, honest opinions. So interesting. Will update once I’ve listened to the other seasons!

Good start, bad season 3

I really enjoyed the first two seasons however I stopped listening to season 3 after the first couple episodes. It made me cringe listening to all of these criminals speak and act like they are the victims, ESPECIALLY the ones who are in and out of court on a consistent basis. You aren’t a good person if you abuse government funding, have too many kids you can’t support who end up going into the system, have a drug problem and constantly cry for help but refuse to help yourself and commit crimes and end up in jail repeatedly. Sarah trying to defend them and blame the justice system is absolutely appalling, I agree that not every government official is fair and there are some corrupt people but nothing I heard in the episodes I listened to made me believe those particular officials are corrupt, clearly those people are criminals.
