When Sarah Delia at WFAE in Charlotte, N.C., got the idea for what would become the new investigative podcast She Says, she wasn’t sure what form the project would take, or even whether the person at the center of the story would be willing to participate.
But as Delia followed the story of a woman she calls Linda, her reporting sent her on a deep dive to find out more about how the criminal justice system handles sexual assault cases. Listeners will hear about Linda’s case, still unsolved, even though the survivor says she knows who’s to blame.
The podcast launches Thursday. I talked with Delia about how the story found her and what listeners can expect.
