Description

The City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990.

Winter is turning into spring, and in Chicago, that means construction season. 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.

Season 3 of Unsolved tells the story of Fr. Alfred Kunz, a Catholic priest from a small-town Wisconsin parish. In 1998, someone slit his throat. Some believe his death was linked to his battles against evil. Others believe his all-too-human flaws were to blame. But his murder has never been solved. You can find the new season of the hit podcast from the USA TODAY Network and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Apple Podcasts or wherever you're listening now.
The courtroom can be a battlefield over money, people’s rights, and even their lives. For some cases, the consequences can affect us long after the verdict is read.Whether it's Hulk Hogan v Gawker, the World Trade Center Insurance Case, or the Monkey-Selfie copyright debacle, Wondery’s new podcast LEGAL WARS puts you inside the jury box of some of the most famous court cases in American history.
