From the Accused podcast team, Aftermath is an episodic look at survivors of gun violence.
Two crime reporters travel the country talking to people whose lives changed in the blink of an eye. Their backgrounds, environments and stories all vary, but they share one defining truth: They’ve survived a gunshot.
The City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990.
After years of disinvestment, highways are rebuilt, old buildings demolished, new skyscrapers erected. All that rubble has to go somewhere, and its destination isn’t a landfill—it’s a pair of vacant lots in a black, working-class neighborhood called North Lawndale. The man behind this operation is a white guy sporting a Cosby sweater and underworld connections. What follows is a tour de force through Chicago’s underbelly: Aldermen get indicted. An FBI investigation goes awry. A community’s resilience is tested—all unfolding under the spectre of racism in America.
