Conviction

A True Crime, Society and Culture podcast featuring
 9 people rated this podcast
When John Quinney was ten years old, he took the stand to testify against his own father. He had come to believe that his dad Melvin was the murderous leader of a satanic cult. It would be decades before John would learn that his family was just one of many swept up in a panic that gripped America in the 1980s—one in which hundreds of people were accused of taking part in underground satanic cults that sacrificed infants and sexually abused children. By the time the panic had subsided, scores of people were in prison, convicted on little to no evidence—people like John's father. Conviction: American Panic takes you inside one of the darkest and most bizarre chapters of American history. This series contains descriptions of adult subject matter, including details of sexual abuse and trauma. It may not be suitable for everyone, discretion is advised.

A great series about a private investigator trying to fight corruption. His methods become questionable over the series and makes you start making choices as to where you stand. A great show.
Interesting story of police corruption, crime, the justice system, and those who try to fight it. Sometimes droned on a bit.
