"(Season: Trouble In Sweetwater) If I need to even lift a finger to convince you to listen to a Pulitzer Prize and Peabody Award-winning investigative journalist Connie Walker podcast, I don’t know what you’re doing here. …"

"(Season: Surviving St. Michael's)...both an expansion and a deepening of her project with Walker turning inward to explore a story in her own family. What emerges is a moving investigation via oral history and an affecting recognition of the close relationship between the personal and the political."

What’s less clear is if the stories of women like Charlo are, within the larger cultural landscape, truly being heard."

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Mar 3, 2021

"I’ve listened to the first two episodes, and the transition is pretty smooth: It has the same high level of dogged reporting, the same compelling rhythms of chasing down leads in a case, and the same determined perspective of a reporter staring down a long history of violence.
