MPR Connects events are your chance to engage in deep discussion with our staff and learn more about our projects. Join us for one of the events this fall!

Released this spring 2018, In the Dark’s second season uncovers holes in the case against Flowers, a Mississippi man tried six times for the same crime. Host and award-winning lead reporter Madeleine Baran and APM Reports editor-in-chief and managing director Chris Worthington will lead a discussion on how the investigative team chooses their stories and how they pursue them, as well as the work done to make this podcast, and pursue questions about the case against Flowers. The team’s reporting involved relocating to Mississippi for a year, talking to hundreds of people and reading thousands of documents to understand how Flowers came to be tried multiple times for the same crime and why the same local prosecutor continues to try him.

Each event is open to the public but space is limited and registration is requested.
