Through the Cracks
When 8-year-old Relisha Rudd disappeared from a homeless shelter in Washington, D.C. in 2014, nobody noticed. By the time authorities formally declared Relisha “missing,” 18 days had passed since she’d been spotted at school or the shelter where her family lived. Seven years later, Relisha has never been found. Through the Cracks investigates gaps in our society and the people who fall through them, and in this first season, host Jonquilyn Hill asks if Relisha’s disappearance was, as the city later claimed, unpreventable. From WAMU and PRX.

"Less of a whodunit and more of a how-could-we-let-this-happen, Hill covers the case with equal parts journalistic rigor and empathy."

"Through the Cracks, a strikingly thoughtful and considered entry in the true-crime genre. You can feel the podcast keenly aware of this framework and that it labors to negotiate its conventions in search of the bigger takeaway. All that, and more, make up the contours of Hill’s investigation, which is also noteworthy for the strength of its writing."
