Stories like these make me appreciate investigative journalism and the thorough fact-checking that is required to deliver an objectively as possible look at the story at hand. I found the latter episodes a bit lacking, as it didn’t discuss the moral quibbles and the impact of long-term confinement. I would have like to know more how difficult Bowe found it to readjust after getting back into society. Probably there was not much footage, but that would have been more fascinating to me than the political outfall that ensued. Overall, this was worth my time and I appreciated getting such an intimate glimpse in the mind of a person that struggled with these moral conundrums.
As with S‑town, the question is whether this qualifies as an audiobook, but for me this audio narrative does. Personally, I want to keep track on the stories and ideas that I expose myself to, so this for me falls in that category.
