A policeman turns sexual predator, and a group of fearless women from around the world band together to bring him to justice. Across continents and years, they launch their own investigation with a team of Italian journalists and trigger a trial unlike any seen in Italian court. Hosted by investigative reporter Natasha Del Toro, this ten-episode, immersive true crime series examines the trust we place in the sharing economy and the power that a simple checkmark or digital review can hold over our lives.

“Truth crushed to earth will rise again. We are in a deep season of terror and darkness. White supremacy and the distorted belief in Black inferiority was once a formula for getting along. Now, we have changed our minds for ourselves and for our destiny. We began marching, protesting. We have the power to change the whole world. Unfinished: Deep South podcast is a timely reminder of how the dark past still has repercussions today."
– Reverend Jesse Jackson, Founder & President of Rainbow PUSH Coalition
“A ghostly narrative from the past that feels maddeningly present, Unfinished: Deep South weaves a nuanced narrative of forgotten Black lives from the South — reverent in tone, vital in its inquest.”
– Rebecca Carroll (Cultural Critic at WNYC and Host of the podcast Come Through with Rebecca Carroll)
"Unfinished Deep South is a tremendously smart and compelling series that investigates the lynching of Isadore Banks, a wealthy black farmer in Arkansas. Terror and theft coalesce in this brutal murder. White supremacy is not only upheld by the law, it is the law. Unfinished: Deep South could not be more timely; it is required listening."
– Saidiya Hartman (Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments. 2019, MacArthur Fellow)
“This gripping and devastating story of Isadore Banks is a must listen. A stunning investigation into his murder eerily mirrors the racial injustice that sadly we still are experiencing today.”
– Sanaa Lathan (Award-Winning Actress)
“You might not know it yet, but the story of Isadore Banks — a black farmer lynched in Arkansas in 1954 — is a vital part of the history you're currently living through. ‘A lynching does more than kill a body; it shatters an identity.’ If you want to be better, know yourself, take the time to get to know him.”
