When big news happens, the world tunes in and then moves on. But often the stories we thought were over haven’t really ended; they were the beginning of something else. Undone is a new show from Gimlet Media that digs up the surprising things that happened when we weren’t looking.

Love the curiosity, and gracious yet challenging reporting. Can't wait for more.
This is not real journalism. The host had his opinions and judgements going into those interviews and was trying to get sound bites out of the interviewees that suit his own agendas.
Poorly researched and biased
Really disappointed after listening to the 'Ancient One' episode. I love Gimlet media but this episode of Undone was so biased and factually incorrect that I am surprised Gimlet is associated with Undone. The "scientific" viewpoint was painfully misrepresented. Anthropologists never argued that Kennewick man wasn't a Native American, they argued that Kennewick may be an Native American who was part of a different - earlier - wave of migration into the Americas. Archaeological evidence suggests that the modern Colville, Umatilla, Yakima and Nez Perce tribes are likely associated with indivduals who migrated later in time. For NAGPRA to apply, you need to be able to demonstrate that the remains in question are directly related to your tribe, not just that they are Native American. They also spent a lot of time talking to Jack Hitt (who has no training in the subject at all), and who almost immediately brings up a pseudo-science hypothesis (the Solutrean hypothesis) in a weird attempt to make it seem like the scientists were arguing that Kennewick man was European. After hearing this episode, I am seriously questioning the validity of all of the Undone episodes.
