Welcome to Crimetown, a series produced by Marc Smerling and Zac Stuart-Pontier in partnership with Gimlet Media. Each season, we investigate the culture of crime in a different city. In Season 2, Crimetown heads to the heart of the Rust Belt: Detroit, Michigan. From its heyday as Motor City to its rebirth as the Brooklyn of the Midwest, Detroit’s history reflects a series of issues that strike at the heart of American identity: race, poverty, policing, loss of industry, the war on drugs, and our universal desire for a savior. Detroit’s a tough town, and its residents are even tougher. They’ve weathered riots, a drug epidemic, political scandal, and innumerable other hardships, but they’re still here—and they have stories to tell.

The Seen and the Unseen - hosted by Amit Varma

The Seen and the Unseen - hosted by Amit Varma
This weekly podcast takes its title from Frédéric Bastiat’s famous essay, ‘That which is seen and that which is unseen'. In his essay, Bastiat uses the example of what later came to be known as the "Broken Window Fallacy", and pointed out that to evaluate the consequences of any action, we need to look at both its seen effects, which are often the rationale behind the action, and its unseen effects, which include unintended consequences and ripple effects. Every week our host Amit Varma will examine the world through the lens of the Unseen. He will tackle subjects such as economics, neuroscience and behavioural psychology, and examine both public policy and private action. Each show will feature guests who are experts in the subject under discussion: economists, legal experts, scientists and media commentators. A new episode of The Seen and the Unseen will be released every Monday.
