Brilliant

First-class journalism here. A very, very detailed investigative podcast that goes inside shell companies, tenants, neighbors, and slum lords in inner city Canada. There’s a nice balance between having sympathy for the people getting screwed by the system, while also calling out the gang and drug related criminals who are often terrorizing communities. It’s a complex problem to solve; all facets are examined here. Awesome work!

Fascinating & Well Reported

I'm only on episode 3, but this is already one of the best true crime podcasts I've heard. Fascinating and very well reported without all of the host back patting that I've come to loathe. Keep it up!!!
