Best Controversy or Scandal: Kristin Smart Case/Your Own Backyard Podcast

This is going to be a controversial opinion. I was never really that enthralled with the Kristin Smart case. It was more local lore than anything else, something to keep an eye on for developments and the occasional billboard on the highway. But the Your Own Backyard podcast changed that. Somebody else took a deep dive into case obsession and packaged their research into one of my favorite forms of media to consume. Local Chris Lambert did a service to the community, invigorating the case with thoughtful reporting and drawing national attention to the ins and outs of the decades-old case. Who knows what comes next, but I, for one, will definitely be paying close attention this time.
