I’ve listened to all of the episodes and now I feel empty. I’m eager for the next season!

If you like Serial, Bearbrook, Happy Face, Counterclock, and the like, you’ll love this podcast! The production value is excellent as are the storytelling elements! I couldn’t stop listening—this is a perfect binging podcast!

I really enjoy this this podcast (both seasons), but one thing that drives me crazy is how Madeline keeps pausing multiple times in the middle of sentences. I get that it is important to speak clearly, but I'm pretty sure most people would still be able to understand without the extra pauses....Read full review »

Totally binge-worthy, interesting and so so fascinating. It is the perfect mix of revisiting the events of a crime/ the legal process that ensues and matching the consequences of the crime to general trends that are problematic. I literally went through both seasons in a span of 4 days. Such good...Read full review »

Very well researched, produced and laid out. There were a few names that she repeated so many times it started to feel like my skin was crawling. You don’t need to say “DA Doug Evans” every single time you mention him, and do not need to say “Willy James Hemphill” some 200 times in one episode....Read full review »

Very interesting case I wasn’t aware of. The reporter prepares you in the beginning for an anti law enforcement slant but narrows focus to the sheriff in charge of the case but broadens in the conclusion to encompass all sheriffs departments. Also, very odd to do an entire episode with a pro sex...Read full review »
Shaner101 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
Great listen!! Very well documented and researched. Very telling of how unwilling some in law enforcement to learn and grow. The sheriff actually said the reason they close so few cases is due to luck! They literally rely on luck to solve heinous crimes!! Anyone that has seen an episode of Law...Read full review »

What a value contribution to justice. Thank you for investigating this case so thoroughly and bringing it to the public.

An incredible amount of work goes into this podcast, and it shines through in the best possible ways. Must listen.

Investigative journalism at it's best & most compelling. Moving one to outrage, sadness & disbelief in equal measures. Very careful reporting but extremely thorough and easy to read between the lines given the evidence provided. I am grateful for journalists like these. Kudos.

I’ve listened to seasons 1 and 2 of “In The Dark” and am still thinking about the episodes many weeks after finishing them. The series’ focus on telling unbiased, factual accounts of tragic murders whose trials are likely miscarriages of justice is a compelling, harrowing look at the state of law...Read full review »

Frustrating podcast because it is so well researched and the case is so compelling, but I’m dumping out because of the overt bias.. In season 1 you went down a 20 minute rabbit hole about the how and why ballistics is flawed?!... an insultingly transparent effort to make your material more...Read full review »
luvvagoodstory via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/08/19
I found season 2 very biased from the beginning. Repeating “fought for an appeal and won” over and over and then saying Flowers is still in prison- he won an appeal not the case. The journalist also began the season saying something along the lines of “newly discovered / reported” evidence in her...Read full review »
nicoleLB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
This entire podcast is narrated by a law enforcement hater who has the “I could have been done better” mentality. The fact that APM allows the subtle blaming of our LEOs and investigators for the murder of a child is appauling and disappointing beyond belief. In 1989, a town with a population of...Read full review »

It is PITIFUL that you covered the plight of sex offenders in this episode. Who cares if Marcus had a hard time finding a place to live. You need to concentrate on keeping children safe.
srupe78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
Started off somewhat interesting and okay but I disliked season 2 and lost interest. Not the best, but not the worst, just okay.
A Libby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
This is an outstanding production, both seasons 1 & 2. Can’t recommend enough! Brilliantly exposes the incompetence,prejudice and corruption that exists in some of the law enforcement agencies we largely trust and rely on for protection.The production team should be winning awards!
happyjack19 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/19
No other podcast lives up to this one. It was terrifying, heartbreaking and intriguing all at the same time. The story telling was easy to follow. I was able to make my own opinion about law enforcement’s efforts. And was given the tools to take a look at my local LEOs. Thank you. I hope season...Read full review »

Just finished Season 2 and the integrity and storytelling of this show is profound.
davezed via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/19
Season 2 is very biased against the citizens and law enforcement of Mississippi. The narrator could’ve done a better job of investigating this without trying to portray everyone in Mississippi as an uneducated racist.
RC9476 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
Thoughtful commentary
MayaMcKenzie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
I only listened to the first 2 episodes before I couldn’t take it anymore. Why not just tell the story? Your opinions aren’t needed, and arm chair quarterbacking the police isn’t helpful. Maybe you should become a police officer instead of a journalist, since you can do so much better.
Sugarplum42223 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
This podcast is amazing. I binged listened to season 1 and 2 and they are both amazing. The investigative work done by the journalists involved was above and beyond. During the first episode I was sure Curtis Flowers was guilty from all the evidence provided by the prosecution, but as you...Read full review »

I’m not even pro police, but I am bugged by the constant use of the word “cops”. That seems unprofessional and slanted. They are police officers. Give them their due. You wouldn’t want to be coined as “fake news.” But I like the podcast.
Cimoreka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/19
Truly outstanding
LB 83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/19
Overall, this podcast is a good listen, and these are interesting stories worth covering. However, sometimes I doubt the reporters' objectivity. The narrator also overexplains A LOT and repeats things to highlight a point, without trusting that the listener is following along and is intelligent...Read full review »

It's really well reported and very interesting to listen to. The only complain I have is their sponsor (Betterhelp), which has been exposed as a scam.
TareqSM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/19
After listening to the first 5 minutes, yes that’s not a typo: 5 minutes, I binge listened to all 11 episodes plus the updates and bonuses and the Q&A. Understanding enough of the law and combined with how the South hasn’t really changed, I can see how I’m so frustrated. Curtis’ situation only...Read full review »

You can tell how much work they put into investigating this case. Kudos!
ballet_cat via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/01/19
Really good reporting !It has been so hard for Curtis Flowers to be treated fairly in the justice system. Can he ever get some of his life back?
Cindy Clo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/19
Like many podcasts the second season can’t match the first. The first season is riveting, enjoyable, fascinating. The second season I didn’t get through. It just didn’t grab my attention.
PinkFriar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/19
One of my favorite podcasts to listen to. I listened to both seasons multiple times and catch something new each time. The host is so easy to listen to and the stories are fascinating, frustrating, and hooked me from the first episode. Can’t wait for a 3rd season!
Mrshemperley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/19
I have listened to 100s of podcasts and you are soooo thorough and such fine journalists ! We need more of you in every country ! I hope you win awards for uncovering the incompetence of these government agencies that are meant to protect us From Australia Amanda
Ozzpoder via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/30/19
Clear, precise, and evocative reporting. I started each season skeptical, and was so very hooked by the second or third episode, each season. The detailed and streamlined way the information is presented makes these complicated stories easy to follow. Personal interviews bring depth to the story.
Emmysuh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
👍🏼 Great educational, investigative podcast based on true stories.
Michelle Clara via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
Hey, accidentally checked one star but meant to check five. A really well told investigation that makes you wonder about the current state of how crimes are solved.
RMC63 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/19

This podcast is well produced and their investigations are extremely thorough. This podcast makes a lot of other podcasts look like a joke.

Really good!
Photo editing app addict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/19
I am new to the podcast, and thought it was pretty interesting... HOWEVER when I got to the episode that is trying to make people feel bad that sex offenders have a hard life and we should pity them, disgusting. Looked directly at reviews following this episode and no one seems upset. How?...Read full review »

Great investigative journalism and narrative Season 2 is incredible. Can’t wait for season 3
jenncraintrebon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/19
Both seasons were well produced and the amount of effort they put into investigating the second season's case was extreme. They uncovered a lot during the second season.
Chris-132 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/19
This is such an amazingly well investigated podcast that is provoking actual change!! It is so well done. Everyone needs to listen
LexSak via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/19
Season 2 really seems like she is trying as hard as possible to raise doubt and make a story. She clings to the smallest little thing and tries to make it sound dramatic and groundbreaking. It’s an interesting story but through 4 episodes I’m still waiting to hear something that makes me sit up...Read full review »
Turick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/19
The narrator told me that they offered to share their findings with Curtis’ attorneys ON THE CONDITION that it be on the record, to which Curtis’ attorneys rightly declined. Clearly these people care more about their story than a man’s life. Shameful
Marina Runner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/19
A friend of mine recommended season 1 but I accidentally started on season 2. I like that you guys don’t lead people into conclusion but instead just lay the information so we can come up with our own opinion, which, to me, is great journalism. I like how thorough your investigation work is and...Read full review »
