4.0/5

Critic Rating

The Undisclosed podcast investigates wrongful convictions, and the U.S. criminal justice system, by taking a closer look at the perpetration of a crime, its investigation, the trial, and ultimate verdict... and finding new evidence that never made it to court.

Rebecca Lavoie • Vulture Oct 1, 2019

"The show captures our current moment in which audiences want to hear stories about innocent people caught up in an unfair and cruel system, positioning Undisclosed as the closest thing podcasting has to the Innocence Project."

Fiona Sturges • Independent (UK) May 21, 2015

"(Episodes: Adnan Syed) So whereas Koenig was an impartial observer trying to cut through the circumstances...Chaudry’s bias here is clear. Undisclosed is essentially one long plea for Adnan’s innocence. Undisclosed makes for dreary listening and may well prove counterproductive. It’s in Chaudry and Adnan’s interest to keep the narrative alive, but with podcasts like this we may stop caring altogether."

Priya Elan • The Guardian May 14, 2015

"(Episodes: Adnan Syed) Where Serial mined questions of absolute truth and cleverly circled the possibilities of guilt and innocence, Undisclosed sounds like an update from the We Heart Adnan fan club, with Jay as Brutus to Syed’s Caesar. You could forgive terrible production values – such as the differing sound levels and ham-fisted editing – if the content of Undisclosed added to the conversation. Instead, the show feels like a reheat of old leftovers rather than a new perspective. Perversely, perhaps, with its legalese-heavy tone and artlessness, what Undisclosed does do is remind us what a skilled storyteller Koenig is."

Julie Scharper • Baltimore Sun Apr 13, 2015

"(Episodes: Adnan Syed) What "Undisclosed" offers is what lawyers do best -- a precise analysis of the myriad legal issues surrounding the case. It will only make sense if you have listened, and listened closely, to "Serial." It's also a reminder that most legal work is tedious and detail-driven, not like courtroom drama presented in TV."
