Homeland Insecurity

5.0/5

Critic Rating

How Fear Changed America. First released in 2020, Homeland Insecurity is an 8-part documentary podcast from RAICES that chronicles the untold story of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We go back to the beginning, when our government built a powerful new agency in the wake of 9/11 to protect America from terrorists—only to use that agency to terrorize immigrants. From family separation to federal agents deployed amidst protests against systemic injustices, the scope and cruelty of DHS continues to expand, begging the question: Is anyone safe?

"A good podcast bounces around your head for a long time after you hit stop. It doesn’t let go until the gray matter physically changes. This is such a podcast. The storytelling in Homeland Insecurity is evocative. And I think it’s what they were going for. Anidola and her team, in just 8 episodes thus far, hold up a mirror and redirect some light into your lens. It’s not preachy. It isn’t radical. I thought I knew what I’d be getting when I sat down to listen to this pod. I was wrong. I was surprised."
