RATING
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.
Very informative and feels pretty unbiased. They've tackled some pretty interesting and heartbreaking cases so far.It doesn't feel like they've bought into their own hype yet, and that's refreshing.
It is a true crime podcast with a twist! It has a real ending! Really worth listening with some heavy, heavy real life implications and questions that will make you think.
Season 2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I'm only on episode two of the second season (Curtis Flowers); I will listen to season one when this investigation is concluded - but so far I am immensely impressed by the caliber of this production. I am deeply committed to this story, and am trying to pace my listening to give my emotions a break between episodes.
UPPER BALCONY PODCAST LIVES AND DIES FOR THIS TRUE CRIME PODCAST! WE BOUGHT FREE CURTIS FLOWERS SHIRTS AND HOLD THIS PODCAST TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD!! We listen to true crime then rate and review the overall podcast.. this one we did not rate on our podcast but is one we mention almost every episode. Love this podcast. #freecurtisflowers
Bravo.Excellency in investigative journalism, through pure, dogged determination. These people are not born radio or podcasting superstars, but are doing the best they can with what they have, and thusly achieving greatness in search of truth and justice. Bravo. Sound quality, narration and pacing are well thought out and decently performed. This is what podcasting should be.
Season one is haunting. I think of Jacob and his mother often.
You probably don't need me to tell you about great this one is, it's in the news all the time it seems. The seemingly never ending case of Curtis Flowers is essentially put on trial in this excellent podcast that was actually used in the Flowers court case. A show that actually effected someone life. That's about as good as it gets.
I've listened to season 1, & am just finishing season 2. The podcast is interesting, to be sure, but the reporting is super biased. From the start of season 2, it's incredibly obvious that the podcast's goal is to free Curtis Flowers, rather than finding the truth. From befriending the Flowers family & attending family functions, to the music chosen for segments of the podcast, the podcast has chosen its side from the beginning, & all the social justice warriors who listen to it have just jumped right on board. The podcast never even considers that Flowers might actually be guilty. Moreover, media should not be influencing court cases. As numerous attorneys state in the podcast, cases should be decided in the courts, by professionals, with all the evidence presented. I am troubled that biased media is interfering more & more in legal decisions. The consumers of podcasts should understand that they won't get all the facts from listening to a podcast, & have no place to form conclusions about the guilt or innocence of someone based on a podcast. And they certainly have no place to act on those uninformed conclusions & petition to have a convicted felon released.
The first true crime podcast I listened to all the way through (this was back in 2018, when I was only 18 years old ? ? ? ? ?). Season 1 was better than season 2, but season 2 was still marvelous. My husband also enjoyed this show, but not as much.
Heartbreaking. The level of research is amazing and wonderful. Interviews are thought-provoking and deep, without being a voyeur.
I thought Season One the best investigative reporting I'd ever heard, until I heard Season Two. In the Dark just keeps getting better! This is investigated, reported and produced to a very high standard. Also a side note: their website is very well maintained with loads of added pieces of information to follow up from the podcast, which I appreciate a lot.
Very well researched and intriguing!
The best true crime podcast, bar none. Their level of investigative detail is unsurpassed.
One of the best out there. I love this podcast
I don't think an absolutely hands down - top of the class - superbly journalistic podcast like this needs reviews, but I read the review of Danette and I just have to throw it our here: In the Dark season 2 has surpassed the concept of a podcast and is a social justice tool that single handedly corrected one of the worst judicial mistakes in decades I have heard from . Trusting fully in the 'professionals' in the courtrooms like Danette is saying above, can end up in trusting some of the most untrustworthy people deciding what is justice. In the Dark S2 shows you just that. This podcast did not just put out a petition, In the Dark held the evidence against the light and tore it apart piece by piece, episode after episode, coerced witness after racial bias. A task that is supposed to be done by investigators, jurors and judges. But they all failed, 5 times in a row, and it was this podcast that made a difference between literally life and death. If you rate this podcast less than 5 stars, true crime is just not for you. If you're just a little bit into journalism or social justice, or just considering slightly that human endeavour is flawed and should always be checked, you rate this one 5 stars. I would give 5 more if Podchaser would let me. Superb listening stuff.
Very thorough investigation
Almost finished listening to the 1st season and its very well done. They are not afraid to ask a lot of difficult questions (even one of the interviewee, IIRC is the sheriff or the former town council member admitted so). Thought they would have finished the show after ep 4 where the story have ended but they push it further to explore the way crimes are handled in the area and the politics relating to the election of sheriffs.
