"Superb reporting, PHENOMENAL podcasting. In the Dark takes podcasting to another level. It cleanly cuts open the dark underbelly of our often flawed and corrupt justice system, and unfolds the stories of its victims. I'm always looking forward to the next episode. Thank you Madeleine Baran, for your dedicated work. "
