For at least a decade, allegations of cheating have swirled around elections in rural Bladen County, N.C. Some people in town point fingers at a Black advocacy group, the Bladen County Improvement Association, accusing it of bullying voters, tampering with ballots and stealing votes outright. These accusations have never been substantiated, but they persist. Reporter Zoe Chace went to Bladen County to investigate what’s really going on. From the makers of Serial and The New York Times, a five-part series about allegations of election fraud — and the powerful forces that fuel them.

  • Just not that great

    Echoing what others have said… there was just no point? A podcast that could have been incredibly interesting that was just okay and a reporter that clearly had so many biases that it was hard to believe her claims of “fair reporting.” Try again!

  • Fascinating and Well Done

    Very interesting story, compelling telling, balanced reporting. Great to hear how a very localised investigative journalism piece works. If you like this, check out the Trojan Horse Affair by the same people - I heard that one first, also excellent.

    I got to the end, and wanted my time back. There’s no “there” there.
