||CleanIntroducing The City | 9||The City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990. After years of disinvestment, highways are rebuilt, old buildings demolished, new skyscrapers erected. All that rubble has to go somewhere, and its destination isn’t a landfill—it’s a pair of vacant lots in a black, working-class neighborhood called North Lawndale. The man behind this operation is a white guy sporting a Cosby sweater and underworld connections. What follows is a tour de force through Chicago’s underbelly: Aldermen get indicted. An FBI investigation goes awry. A community’s resilience is tested—all unfolding under the spectre of racism in America.

||CleanComing Soon: Aftermath||We hear all too often about the casualties of gun violence in America. But what about the survivors? Two crime reporters travel the country talking to people whose lives changed with the pull of a trigger. Their backgrounds, environments and stories all vary, but they share one defining truth: they’ve survived a gunshot.||5/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
The reporting is great, but it’s meant for writing not podcast. The content is fantastic, I love it. BUT the narrators voice is so distracting. It sounds like there’s a huge ball of phlegm in her throat...all the time. It’s like nails on a chalk board
I heard of this podcast while listening to Accused, and it’s fantastic. I had a hard time getting used to Amanda’s voice, but now after listening to this and Accused, I am a huge fan of her. She is a great writer and allows the survivors to tell their stories in a way that is personable and true. The editing is great as well. A must listen!
Gripping / humbling / informative
I subscribed to this podcast series when it first came out (months ago, I believe) However, because it wasn’t time sensitive (current news/holiday related), I let it sit in my podcast library until yesterday. My normal morning radio show is on vacation, so I thought I’d go ahead and listen to an episode or two of this. Ended up listening to every single episode yesterday. The stories are gripping, emotional, interesting, and informative. Hearing people with different backgrounds and life situations was humbling. It can happen to literally anyone. Excellent podcast.
