Podcast: From the NYPD: Break in the Case 

November 29, 2019 | By Jim Stovall | Filed in: journalism, podcasting.

If you are a fan of true-crime police procedurals and looking for a good podcast along those lines, there probably isn’t a better source than the New York Police Department.

The NYPD has just begun a new podcast called “Break in the Case” that will follow some complex cases through multiple episodes to their conclusion.

Break in the Case is a true crime podcast written and produced by the New York City Police Department. Listen as we follow “the world’s greatest detectives” to three crime scenes—some you may know, some you don’t. Source: Break in the Case – Podcast – NYPD

The first case in this series begins with the 1991 discovery of a small girl found inside a cooler discard along a busy highway. The police nickname her Baby Hope because there is no indication of her identity.

The podcast — I have listened to the first episode — is slickly produced with great narration and clear, concise interviews from multiple sources. I am looking forward to additional episodes as they become available.

The good thing about this series coming from NYPD is that there is lots of inside information coming from inside sources. What we are unlikely to hear, I imagine, is a lot of criticism of the NYPD — although I may be proven wrong in that assumption.

Meanwhile, however, if this is the kind of podcast that you have been waiting for, listen and enjoy.
