Critic Rating

In 1973, David Kushner's 11-year-old older brother Jon biked through a suburban Florida forest to buy candy for his little brother, and never returned. Decades later, now an accomplished journalist and author, Kushner investigates his brother’s case and the profound impact it had on his family and community. Piecing together police reports, interviews, and the memories of loved ones––David tells the story of what happened to his family and his town, after his brother disappeared.Credits:Jessica Grimshaw- For USG AudioJosh Bloch- For USG AudioJennifer Sears- For USG AudioGretta Cohn- Executive ProducerDavid Kushner- Executive Producer, HostEmmy Rossum- Executive ProducerAlex Sujong Laugh...

Chanel Dubofsky • Vulture Jun 4, 2021

"...not only examines the crime itself, which pulverized Tampa’s view of itself as a safe community, but that also examines what grief and guilt and close calls can look like years later and how human beings cope...Kushner comes to a powerful realization as to how his brother may have felt in his last moment."
