The issues raised in this podcast, particularly in season 2, are shocking. It raises big questions about the US's justice system and court processes.

I thought that Serial set a high bar for investigative podcasts, but Season One’s investigation of the Wetterly abduction surpassed Serial. It not only discusses the crime itself, but it examines some of the basic flaws in the system behind the investigation and pursuit of the culprit involved. ...Read full review »

This podcast is thoroughly investigated and completely captivating! I was especially moved by Season 2, excellent work!

This is not just brilliant journalism and reporting, this is a story that needs to be heard. Compelling and shocking, a total ‘must listen’.

By far the most compelling, best produced, and well researched true crime podcast available. A master class in investigative journalism with clear and concise presentation of a complex story. Subscribed.

I’m a true crime junkie, and some podcasts are just hard to get through. However, the “In the Dark” series is quite the opposite. The journalists exhibit incredible investigative reporting and put years of research into just a few succinct, yet detailed, attention-grabbing episodes. The pressure...Read full review »

I am exhausted with the “true crime” podcasts that stretch a story and do no new work. This is journalism and it’s worth your time and support.

I finished season one in just two days. This podcast offers an incredible display of investigative journalism, and while it deftly reveals the cracks in our justice system, it managed to leave me with a little hope for our future, if people as smart and fearless and committed as this are on the...Read full review »

Everything was incredible up until season 1 episode 6, which completely baffled me. But listen and form your own opinions. After that it gets back on track, but the issue with the sex offender registry is off-putting and not handled very well imo.

I applaud the tenacity and story telling. Curtis Flowers case is extreme example of prosecutorial misconduct. However, she lost me when she called Ballistics testing “junk science.” That’s wholly inaccurate but was reported as such to fit her narrative. Also worth noting that Batson applies to...Read full review »

Loved this Podcast and the continued hunt for the truth!
marco search via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/19
Both seasons so far have been beyond excellent. Truly a master class in journalism: clear, objective, and comprehensive. Highly recommended.
Shiloh42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
In the Dark is an amazing podcast. I was literally obsessed and kept trying to figure out way to listen to this when I had other things I needed to be doing. Season 1 is great and Season 2 is amazing reporting and amazing investigating done by the entire staff. I would highly recommend!
catharrison via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
Season 2, was so moving. I was riveted from the moment I began listening to this all too familiar real life story of a man who has been wrongfully accused, successfully prosecuted and still to this day remains behind bars despite the amount of evidence that supports a reasonable doubt. I would...Read full review »

Started listening to season two and couldn’t stop listening. After that, I went back and listened to season one. My goodness, this podcast is incredible. You’re sure to be impressed if you listen.
Megakw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/19
The podcast slowly got better and better once I understood their format and where they were going with it, that is until episode six with a blatant disturbing agenda protecting convicted sexual predators and then the pod cast continues by trying to convince the public that they should not know of...Read full review »

So great! I listened to Serial first and wasn’t sure this could compare, but it has! This podcast didn’t only tell the story but could actually free an innocent person!
Stalker mom 1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/19
Intelligent, thorough, thought provoking, articulate, and unsensationalist. Well done, Madeleine Baran! However, I do have a criticism after listening to the Season 1 update today. Producer Natalie is unbearable to listen to. Her use of "like" every other word is "like" a speech impediment. She...Read full review »

Enjoyed season 1. But season 2 WOW!!! I couldn’t stop listening. Its just unbelievable, the injustice that Curtis Flowers has suffered for half his life. No One should have so much power! It it so obvious. I gotta give it to you for all your investigations. You have truly done an excellent job...Read full review »

Is there a Pulizer for podcasts? The time, effort, innovation, and grunt work that this team put into this investigation is staggering. This is not your standard regurgitation of somebody else's work--this is serious journalism, and what they learn about the justice system is infuriating and...Read full review »
Robins Egg Blue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/19
This was my first podcast I listened to. Could not put it down, finished entire season in 2 days. I got so emotional at times and don’t know how Madeleine and Samara made it through without shedding some tears. They were so ballsy knocking on doors and confronting what was on the other side. I...Read full review »

The hard work that was put into this is amazing. Curtis Flowers is innocent and I hope he gets out. No one should get the death penalty. ESP a case based off of circumstantial evidence and no hard core forensics. Unreal all the wrong doing and injustice that has been done to this man.
Francis Faye via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/19
Excellent job and very thorough investigative work. Thank you

Exceptional true crime/investigative podcast.

I get chills!! FREE CURTIS!! He is an innocent man!
ram marie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/19
Have listened to season 1 and 2 and found them fascinating. Such thorough investigative journalism but with a empathic and sensitive approach. Am looking forward to season 3.... please say there is one on the way!

This is the best true crime podcast I’ve listened to - and I have listened to a lot!

Too much unnecessary information

This podcast has ruined true crime podcasts for me. I have been listening to several different pods that do anywhere from 30 minute to 2 hour episodes on different crimes every week or 2. Imagine my surprise when I found this amazing podcast with journalists who moved in order to write the story....Read full review »

This is one of the kind!!! I love to listen podcasts, this one is so well done, it’s become a real pleasure to drive back and forth to work. Thank you for producing such quality !!!

Way way way better than Serial. The best investigative journalism I’ve ever encountered.
Tom2266 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/23/19
This gives me hope. The news is now a game show for entertainment but this podcast brings us back to humanity. Thank you to all parties involved.

This team continues to be THE Gold Standard when it comes to this type of reporting/podcasting.

I absolutely appreciate and admire the hard work that was put into this podcast! It reminded me of the West Memphis Three. I have told everyone who will listen to me about this case. I’ve also been following extremely close with Curtis’ case. I really hope he gets out soon! Exposing the corrupt...Read full review »

Bravo! Here’s to “the Supremes” for saying NO to injustice.
TLH Bird via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/19
The racism underpinning this miscarriage of justice - overwhelming, breathtaking, disgusting. Best podcast of its type that I’ve listened to. Madeline Baran - Pulitzer material, and one very gutsy dame!
TreeSheila via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/20/19
Thank you for producing this podcast. The investigative journalism is impeccable and I’m extremely glad your work helped Curtis Flowers. Both seasons kept me in my car even longer than needed to listed. The second season drew me to look up the Flowers case on my own. Reporter and producer deserve...Read full review »

This is the most impressive investigative podcast I’ve ever heard. Both seasons are immersive, intricate, and perfectly constructed. The team’s passionate need for justice, and their relentless pursuit of answers is palpable. This reporting won awards for a reason, and it shows. The work is so...Read full review »

Another “true” crime podcast that tries to make the guilty look innocent and the Justice system evil and corrupt. Yellow hack journalism at its best.
