"(Season 2) While listening, I experienced a number of emotions and sometimes struggled to wrap my head around the fact that the things I was hearing were true. I just wanted the episodes to keep on going. To be honest, the only negative thing I have to say about Season 2 is that the episodes got slightly shorter as the season went on, and both my husband and I were so hooked that we were disappointed when each episode ended. Rebecca Nagle says she has been investigating this case for four years, and it shows. The episodes are well-researched, well-told, and each one is tightly edited to stay focused and clear. This Land tells an important story, and explains why every US citizen should be paying attention to it."

"...listening to This Land without doing any prior reading on the show can be somewhat disorienting. After finishing the first episode, I began the second and third assuming a similar structure that can be grafted onto practically any true crime podcast. Instead, the show was much more interesting than I expected. This Land is worth listening to not just for its legal analysis of the Murphy case, but because of Nagle’s detailed and caring exploration of Native American history, the indignities Native Americans have suffered, and their resilience in spite of them."
