Telephone Stories

Ninth Planet Audio
Society & CultureDocumentary

Examine the many faces of Michael Jackson with host Brandon Ogborn. What starts as a simple question of guilt or innocence quickly turns into a searching chronicle of race, fame and abuse. Drawing on extensive interviews and relying on much-needed humor, Ogborn and co-host Omar Crook interview Jackson’s defense attorneys, the investigators and prosecutors who pursued him, and the writers and tabloid journalists who followed the cases and ferreted out leads. Through those interviews and their ruminations, Ogborn and Crook wander the hall of mirrors that was Jackson’s life, painstakingly, sometimes painfully, reconstructing the complex narrative of an iconic and troubled performer haunted by allegations of criminal perversion.

  • Balanced, in-depth and really well done

    I’m 52 and as a young teen, I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson and followed all the stories from Bubbles to the documentary after his death about further abuse. Whatever side your on, this is the de-facto doc of the Jackson story. So many interviews, accounts and research woven with a journalistic approach, I m astounded at the commitment to balanced reporting from a lay person. Really well done.

  • Rabbit hole

    It was a dark rabbit hole to go down but I think these guys did a really good job of balancing it with a bit of levity - not to mention that it seems a thorough and balanced look at this story, with all its nuances and complications.
