Is In The Dark a better podcast than Serial season one? Or would it not even exist were it not for Serial?

The Crime Writers take on that debate as we check in with the latest installment of In The Dark's investigation into the investigation that left Curtiss Flowers stranded on death row.

Plus, Adnan Syed gets a new timeline for a legal decision, Brendan Dassey's case maybe gets a SCOTUS look, and in the biggest crime of all, Rebecca and Kevin make jokes about their sex life. Also, Toby WINS the Candace from The Staircase debate.

The crew then digs into Flint Town, a fascinating Netflix docu-series that gives an inside look at one of the most challenged police forces (and cities) in the country. What do cops in Flint think about policing, race relations, politics, and what it means to be a community?
