The first story, which is now up to Episode 9, is a true life murder mystery. In 1999, a high school student was killed in Baltimore. Her ex-boyfriend was arrested and convicted. He’s now serving a life sentence. But the story is more complicated than the jury heard. Could he be innocent?
Each episode varies in length, usually about 30-50 minutes. I highly recommend starting from Episode 1.
The podcast is popular all over the world — it’s now #1 on the iTunes podcast charts in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and Germany (and #4 in France and #6 in Spain). Find out why everyone’s listening, and get a lot of English listening practice, by following the story.
