Season 1 of In the Dark was really good. Here's the description from the website:
For 27 years, the investigation into the abduction of Jacob Wetterling in rural Minnesota yielded no answers. Reporter Madeleine Baran reveals how law enforcement mishandled one of the most notorious child abductions in the country and how those failures fueled national anxiety about stranger danger, led to the nation's sex-offender registries and raise questions about crime-solving effectiveness and accountability.

That sounds interesting, I'm going to check that out.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Ever heard of Star Talk Radio? It's a series of podcasts hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I get the feeling that you and others here would enjoy them. :grin: 
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

I like to listen to clips on YouTube but I don't have money for the full thing.
But, uh...well there it is.

Listen to it occasionally. One of my friends actually did a guest blog post for them.
