Serial Justice, Podcast Crushes, And A Big Hand For The Handmaid's Tale
First: More listener-driven shenanigans
Next: The panel makes recommendations for podcasts you should be downloading. They include finishing the long-but-excellent "Crimetown," a double recommendation for "My Dad Wrote a Porno," and the brand new show "True Crime Obsessed."
Further: Undisclosed just dropped a special pre-appeal episode on the Adnan Syed case. In it, Rabia poses the question of whether justice is served when the appellate judges know less about the case than the general public.
The main event: The crime writers discuss Hulu's adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale." Is the story about a nation of subjugated woman - forced either into servitude, exile, or procreation - a feminist manifesto? From costuming, cinematography, and color schemes, there's much to ponder.
In crime of the week: Is it wrong that a topless cleaning lady would be arrested for stealing underwear?
