  • Good, but Relevant?

    The reporting, production, and narration were excellent! But the stories are so old. Would have liked to see more contemporary examples to support the through line that cautions us about prosecutorial power.

  • Eye-opening, entertaining exposé of corrupt county prosecutors--elected officials. The 7 episodes each focus on a sordid crime case or two wherein the public prosecutor used his power over other players in his local justice system to thwart actual justice. This will appeal most to Wisconsinites, but it's so well produced that any fan of true crime podcasts should listen. Episode 1 is a good intro Civics-wise but feels slow, so hold your judgment until you've heard "Open & Shut" E2.

  • Interesting, important, and timely

    This podcast addresses the important and interesting topic of prosecutorial misconduct. It makes for compelling listening. My only criticism is that the episodes should have been released together. There are too many names and details to remember between weekly episode drops, and the momentum of listening was lost. Otherwise, great work!

  • Important, well-executed and gripping!

    Open and Shut is so well done! The writing and delivery are excellent- very clear and direct, intriguing and even-handed. The stories move along at a crisp but very manageable pace. (This podcast also avoids the annoying, cloying, overly dramatic and repetitive aspects of many other podcasts as well as their mumbly and odd delivery.) more
