I really wanted to like this podcast. I love serial, up and vanished...but this one is so negative. It is so easy now that you know who did it to pick out the evidence that would have solved the case. I am ok with a podcast that is critical of the system but this one is condescending. I gave...

Well researched, enthralling and hard to stop listening to! If you are in to true crime this is an excellent choice!

Excellent investigative reporting!

A well researched & presented podcast, that looks at both sides of the story. Pity the prosecutors weren’t so through & open minded about other possibilities. Great work, keep asking questions. A good podcast for true crime enthusiasts.

Season 2 could have been great. However, the “investigative reporter” simply could not just report the facts. She had to continually claim that the case contained racial undertones and the convictions of Curtis Flowers were motivated by race. I don’t believe that Flowers is guilty, but to listen...

Extremely thorough and well organized story. I am praying that Doug Evans sees the light.

Season 2 is the best season of any podcast since Serial season 1. The level of reporting and investigation is unmatched. A must listen.

These stories are extremely sad. Sure makes you question everything about our legal systems.
Awesome Great Pod 👍 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
One of my favorite podcasts of all time!

Couldn’t stop listening, one of the best Pod cast I’ve heard so far!

I’m not sure how anyone is comparing this to Serial. The narrator sounds like an incredibly pretentious know-it-all. Two stars just for the subject matter being interesting.
MODragons via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/18
Among the best podcasts I’ve listen to. Recommended to anyone who likes Serial, S-Town, or other long-form journalism. Outstanding research, reporting, and organization. Every episode is a gem.
HollyPavement via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/18
Fantastic... I listened to the whole lot in a very short period... simply brilliant journalism... I lost my twin through murder in 1998 and as a result I so much relate to crime stories. The story of Curtis injustice makes you cry at the incompetence and bias of the prosecutors. Can’t wait for...

Armchair quarterbacking with a strong anti-law enforcement, pro-child molester slant. I’m pretty middle of the road in terms of politics, but found certain episodes of this series to be unlistenable given the severe bias.
podcast-123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/18
The podcast is simply amazing. Very well produced, the histories are very rich and full of facts that just keep you attention. That's why once you push play you just want to listen and listen over and over! Highly recommended!
andredarocha via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 12/08/18
I went into this podcast thinking it was a mystery, but it’s clear from the beginning it is not. Then it becomes clear it is a critique of law enforcement. By episode 6, there is a strong critique of sex offender registries that is shallow and one-sided. This episode was truly troubling and...

I have ties to Mississippi and this story hits close to my heart. I love season 2. The Curtis Flowers Story is a common theme among the injustice system. You should listen to this to get educated on this family’s story. If you are from Mississippi, you know will know this story!
m2esquire via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/18
I loved this podcast! I’ve had trouble finding a podcast I liked as much as Serial episode 1 until this. Excellent reporting, great story arcs, a perfect mix of interview and narrative. Thoroughly enjoyed both season 1 and 2. Cannot wait for season 3!
smp12345567 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/18
Had to turn it off. First I did not find her mousy commentary interesting. For the most part she focuses on bashing the police every chance she gets. Her harsh and inexperienced criticism on the law enforcement personnel who handled this case is appalling. Humorous how someone can gain her...
DCnSF via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/18
A must listen... spellbinding and superbly investigated. Heartbreaking.
Katoch woman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/18
So I actually listened to this before Serial and I liked this podcast so much more! Curtis Flowers’ story made me so emotional to hear about this man who is so clearly innocent that it’s baffling why he is still incarcerated. Can’t wait for season 3!
CountryGirlllll821 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/18
I absolutely loved season 1. Season and was even better. My heart broke with every episode. It’s like watching a horrific car crash. My heart goes out to the families and friends of both season but more over my heart is broken for this poor man Curtis Flowers. Thank you for this reporting! Keep...
Mirameoak via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/18
Biased - Something a reporter shouldn’t be. Therefore I can’t listen to this or consider this good reporting. From the start , the reporter’s tone takes a side - so I stopped listening. It’s like she never went to journalism school. Let’s just say- you don’t see this podcast up for any awards
kaitlinsnowmd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/18
Ugh
I would like to like this show, but the reporter (and I feel like I should be putting air quotes around reporter) just comes of as a biased know it all. She goes off about how police wait so long to question witnesses (which is a legitimate question and I don’t know the actual answer to this, nor...

I check the feed for this pod pretty much daily hoping for updates or season three because it’s my absolute favourite. It has genuinely made a positive impact in the world.
ihearttele via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/04/18
I am so happy that Curtis has his story out in the world. I love that he is getting letters of support, and that he knows people are working on his behalf. Thank you for doing all of this work and sharing it with us!

I enjoyed the second season even more than the first
ohbrooksthegirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/18
You inspired me to go further and study what I believe in. Thank you!
arsholan via Apple Podcasts · Ukraine · 12/03/18
Love how thoroughly laid out, researched, and explained this podcast is. It’s incredibly well produced and delivered, and I hope they continue to make seasons that are just as wonderful. Reporters are calm and level-headed and the plot lines are beautifully developed.
Katieholiday via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/03/18
I have been listening to season two and can’t get enough. I’m excited to see all of the work you’ve put into this case & cannot wait to hear updates. Awesome job!
JHSimpson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/18
This is by far the best investigative podcast.
Greg5231 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/18
Regarding Season 2: I live in Mississippi. This shamed me, and embarrassed me. It’s appalling. It’s vile and contemptible beyond words. Every judge and DA and Prosecutor in this case has been clearly exposed as a corrupt racist. Sickening. Doug Evans is a shameful pathetic racist who’s...
Patrick39047 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/02/18
I think this is one of the best produced podcasts I have come across. Great investigation. Great production and a fantastic team.
Petzaluna via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/02/18
This is a great podcast! I’m currently listening to Season 2. I only have one issue with the show—the clear sympathy towards sexual offenders who end up on the sex registry. They gave lots of justifications as to why we shouldn’t put these people on the list. And that’s nice for them to believe....
Mallaboo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/18
This podcast is good and bad. It has a strong narrative and is extremely biased. I expect better from NPR. There are some pretty unrealistic expectations around how crimes are investigated (only absolutes and perfect scenarios) and how the judicial system should work. Naive perspectives...and...
Bobbi412 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/18
I’m so glad that the light is finally shining on the injustice in our so called justice system. Our ‘justice system’ is for those that are mainstream. It’s a ‘punishment system’ for those that are not white middle or upper class citizens of America.
Senoritasmith89 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
Thank you for bringing attention to cases involving these underdogs. It has given me a new perspective on the horrible situations that people across this country have to endure. There are surely hundreds or thousands of cases like these that don’t get reported on. Please continue to shed the...
Rnxn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
The amount of time, effort, and journalism that go into their podcasts is admirable. Every episodes leaves me thinking about our justice system in a way that I never thought I would before. Prior to listening to these podcasts, I thought there were “good guys and bad guys.” This opens my mind to...
bethanyhart_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
Great Great Great! I listened to season 2 and what great reporting, some episodes had me in tears... especially when Curtis was denied to go to his Mother’s Funeral. I am still confused as to why the DA is so stuck on Curtis.. is there more we don’t know about the two and there history.
Doublelmommy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
I just loooove this podcast! Both seasons were fascinating, and I really hope there is a third season coming. Both stories were gripping and addictive to listen to. More, please!!
Whishgirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
Both seasons were well produced and the amount of effort they put into investigating the second season's case was extreme.
Chris-132 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/18
They’ve done a great job organizing and presenting these robust cases.
ModernDC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/18
This podcast was well produced and the amount of effort they put into investigating the second season's case was extreme.
Chris-132 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/18
The narrator very clearly has an axe to grind. While I can’t claim to be a lawyer, I know some law, and the narrator often breathlessly recounts legal details as if they are massive indictments of police behavior, when in fact they are par for the course. The narrator also engages in a lot of...
Mercster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/18
True crime. Well done. Great research and reporting. Editing is good. Pace appropriate. When sound quality is poor, narrator repeats Qs and As. I’ve been looking for something to hold my interest since the first season of Serial. This did it. Both seasons are worthy of a listen.
jacki_lorr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/18
What a podcast!! I love true crime but this podcast takes a critical look at the actions of those we trust are doing all they can to find the criminals when we are the victims of crime. Very thorough and intriguing! Can’t recommend it enough. And may all victims find justice and peace.
Triciebird via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/18
Compelling story, and those saying it’s a cop bashing case are wrong.. There’s more to it than the cops doing a bad job, they did a terrible job..and the podcast gives insight to a still very racist part of the world. I found it to be quite slow compared to other podcasts, and the tone of the...
Gjbujdyg via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/20/18
Incredible reporting here & this is what we need more of in the world & this country. Hats off to this team. The ineptness of the Stearns County Sheriff’s office is an outrage and I wish they could be held accountable. They should be ashamed. Human life should be more important than blowhards...
journoMomx4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/18
Totally blown away by series 2, having also enjoyed series/season 1. The first series perhaps had the wind taken out of its sails by the culprit being found just before they went to air, but season 2 is a Herculean feat of investigation that should be required listening on all journalism courses...
Ghost of Eric via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/16/18
Den her podcast er vellykket og veldrejet inden for sin genre... den eneste ulempe er at man skal vente en hel uge på et nyt afsnit 😢
