This is one of the best podcast I have ever heard. Very factual content. I learned so much about the judicial system. The story itself is compelling.

Moving and sometimes totally jaw-dropping at just how inadequate the investigation was.

Really riveting--listened to all of season 1 in a day. Liked it, with a caveat. The interviews of the host with the sherriff and other police are excruciatingly harsh and borderline accusatory. I was honestly uncomfortable listening to them. She asks leading, unanswerable questions to police who...Read full review »

It would be interesting to see the stats on how many people who sang in their church choir ended up a criminal let alone a brutal murderer.

In the Dark podcast is the gold standard of podcasts. Beautifully produced, compassionate and professional. So thankful that they covered Curtis Flowers Case so that we can all advocate for this innocent man! Well done.

Just so many things wrong in this case. Doesn’t seem like the system is working for this man. The Judge who threw the black juror in jail for hanging the jury should be removed from the bench. That’s the entire point of our jury system but instead yet the judge yells at the juror and locks him...Read full review »

I tried listening to both seasons and I had to stop. She is very biased towards police especially in season 2.

Sets the standard for all in the true crime genre across all media platforms.

What a sad, infuriatingly sorry tale of apparent corruption, racism and ineptitude. If only part of what was told in this podcast were true, it’s a crying shame. The best show I’ve listened to. (Shame about the content) Fantastically investigated and put together. A definite 5 stars. I hope...Read full review »

SPOILER I’m from Mississippi, but I had never heard about this case until a friend told me I should listen. It took me some months to get through it all because it made emotional to hear how blatantly racist and unjust the prosecution is, to begin with Curtis’s mother alive and end with her...Read full review »

I never write reviews but feel the need to speak my thoughts. Both of the cases have been very interesting but you are extremely biased against police and the system... Somethings are very questionable and all but would have appreciated if it was more reported from a neutral stance.

I really enjoyed the pod cast but when I got to S2 E6 the way she was talking two words at a time made me feel like I was listening to my phone transcription and I couldn’t follow along as well. Outside of that glad it’s actual reporting and investigating and not some giggly friends with no...Read full review »

This podcast is outstanding...mostly listed while at work and cried so many times especially with season 2... I live in Canada and can’t even imagine this happening here...Racism is very real and this podcast really shows that.Also using one black man against another is just sad ... i especially...Read full review »

This is interesting to me. But I have to say, everyone knows what happens to sex offenders....so, don’t do it if you don’t want the punishment. I’m sorry, we need to protect our kids. Marcos was going to have sex with young girls. Sorry, I think he deserves it. This isn’t just about...Read full review »

Just started listening to season one & I’m up to episode 6. The #1take away so far from all the episodes is the St.Joseph Sheriffs Department is the most inept police organization in the country. Jacob Wetterling deserved better & so do the people of St.Joseph.
Jazz88105 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
Okay, I found this podcast after season 2 already started. I started listening to season 2 from the beginning and I was hooked! I love how the host, Madeline, tells the story. I’m a Sociologist so I’m already so interested in studying people, crime, and injustice so once I started listening to...Read full review »

One of the best crime podcasts I've ever encountered. Highly recommend!

Awesome season
smile4miles26.2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/19
Very interesting and tense!
Alex Dnipro via Apple Podcasts · Ukraine · 05/21/19
I loved this podcast until episode 10 of season 2. I don’t understand why you wouldn’t turn over what you’ve gathered to Curtis Flowers legal team? You have evidence that seems to potentially be able to exonerate him. You said you offered to go over what you gathered only if they agreed to an...Read full review »

The second season is even better than the first. I don’t know how this doesn’t show that racism is alive and well.
Iamwednesdayschild via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/19
This is a well-researched podcast. Season one was slightly disorganized in the telling of the story, but season two was organized and absolutely riveting. It is a disturbing story but an important one. It shows why capital punishment is inherently unfair. Highly recommended!
mbeau55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
Excellent investigative podcast with high calibre reporting.
Mark Govern via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/17/19
My original statement is no longer valid, I now give this podcast one star and if I could I would give it zero stars because they are standing up for child abductors/pedophiles rights that they do NOT deserve. These people ruin lives (if their victim is allowed to “live” and are not murdered) and...Read full review »
I<3TSwift via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
I have no sympathy for child predators/molesters. The reporter speaks with “Marcos” in chapter 6 and seems like its a chapter trying to conjure up sympathy for predators. Marcos was over 21 and trying to have sex with minors. Boohoo he got caught. Thank God for these laws and i’m thankful i can...Read full review »

I don’t write reviews very often but in this case I will have to make an exception. This podcast sets a very very high standard for investigative journalism and podcasts in particular. If more podcasts are produced like this one then podcasts will become the dominant media for investigative...Read full review »

I have listened to a lot of true crime podcast. I very rarely leave reviews. This stands out amongst the crowd Excellent
HTC55 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/11/19
The details and deep investigation is very admirable, the time lines the need reports you hear , the people’s opinions and the music to keep you on edge. If you like real crime stories this is a good podcast for that. 👍🏽👍🏽
F.Robles via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/19
An incredible podcast. I think anyone could benefit from listening. Even if it contains topics that are hard to listen to and think about, it’s valuable to take a good, hard, critical look at the justice system and the ways in which it can, and needs to, improve.
Mikkimugwump via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/19
THE most relevant podcast I have ever heard! 👏👏👏👏👏

ShannonSpayne via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/09/19
While telling the story about kid getting abdicated and molested and killed, the podcast goes on a tangent about the sex offender registry and attempts to make the listener sympathize with sex offenders. What!?! Who thought that was a good idea? I was already struggling because of the extreme...Read full review »

My view of the state was bad before. It's even lower. Incredible reporting and why have the defendants attorneys not been more vocal on news and in the courts.
Jetskilover via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
For being an amateur journalist/podcaster this girl comes off like a pro. Probably the most underrated true crime podcast
poolejosh1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
This bleeding heart liberal spin on sex offenders in episode 6 is ridiculous. The story is fine but that episode is a slap in the face to the whole essence of the podcast. There’s like a complete pause in the research to advocate for sex offender rights as a blanket effort with zero context or...Read full review »
Matt12675 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/19
I love this podcast, especially season 2. The reporting was seemed unbiased &amp; balanced. Listeners weren’t swayed one way or the other &amp; allowed to come to their own conclusions. Very thorough, to the point, &amp; thoughtful. Overall a great podcast &amp; can’t wait for more seasons!
ilovepodcasts2019 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/19
The injustices discussed in this podcast are absolutely flabbergasting and infuriating but it’s such a great listen. Interesting, extremely well-told and organized. And she’s SO confrontational with the pricks making a mockery of the American (in)justice system; I love it!
CarrieEffing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/19
Such an inspiring podcast, the way each piece of information is dissected, explained and laid out to be both captivating and demystifying (especially as it comes to our complex legal system) puts this podcast on par with Serial. My heart breaks for the Flowers family...why is Doug Evans so evil?...Read full review »
travelingusa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/19
Great method and detail, but depressing. The two seasons kind of tell stories about how incompetent and egotistical men in power can ruin a normal person's life who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
SemperVII via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/19
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both seasons of this podcast but season two is by far the best podcast I’ve listened to and I listened to many true crime podcasts. Season two has a fascinating story and look into the justice system and racial bias. I like the professionalism of the journalists, the tough...Read full review »

Absolutely loved listening to S2 and I hope Doug Evans dies a very slow, and extremely painful death.
stretch729 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/19
Listening to this podcast is a perfect illustrator of how messed up the court system is. Can’t trust DA’s anywhere. All they care about is winning a case at all costs.
Pink Purse 74 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/19
I love his podcast! I feel horrible for Curtis and his family. I binged every episode until I was caught up. Wonderful reporting!! Keep the seasons coming!
Cewel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/19
The main point in season one is to point out what the police should have done based on current standards not what the standard was back then also it was night time knocking on door at night to ask if they saw a kid go missing seems impractical but apparently it’s what the cops should have...Read full review »

All I can say is, WOW!!!

Heard an ad for the second season which intrigued me but started with first season since I was familiar with the case... couldn’t stop listening to it &amp; hope there will be more!
Mwoodreid via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/02/19
Incredible reporting. Gripping, heartbreaking, unbelievable.
Stanieb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/19
Your podcast is my favorite I have ever listened to. I love how you dig deep in both seasons and showed both sides. I am sad to be caught up. A special thank you to whoever set up the seasons so they play one right after the other, instead of backwards. Made listening so much easier. I am excited...Read full review »
