From Serial Productions and The New York Times in partnership with ProPublica and Nashville Public Radio, “The Kids of Rutherford County” is reported and hosted by Meribah Knight, a Peabody-award winning reporter based in the South. For over a decade, one Tennessee county arrested and illegally jailed hundreds, maybe thousands, of children.

  • Great podcast

    Enjoyed the episodes and I’m so glad this story has been brought to light!! As someone that grew up in Rutherford County, we all knew someone that went to “Juvie” and everyone knew it took very little to get there and that it was simply jail. I’m so proud of those that stood up for these children and disappointed in others that didn’t. more

  • The vocal fry is absurd and unlistenable

    Seems like an interesting story but the narrator has absurd vocal fry ruining the show. It’s an audio only medium, why would you not have a narrator who’s pleasant to listen to?
