Listen to Our First Collaboration with “This American Life”

“An Anatomy of Doubt,” a young woman’s story of rape and redemption, debuts Friday.

“An Anatomy of Doubt,” the first collaboration between The Marshall Project, ProPublica, and WBEZ Chicago’s “This American Life,” airs this weekend.

In 2008, an 18-year-old woman said she was raped at knifepoint by a stranger who broke into her home outside Seattle. No one believed her. That’s where “An Anatomy of Doubt” begins its shattering exploration of trust, fear and the power of good detective work.

The radio piece was produced along with the highly-acclaimed article, “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” by reporters Ken Armstrong and T. Christian Miller. It received a 2015 George W. Polk award.

Listen to the episode here.

An 18 year old girl reported a brutal assault. The police called her a liar. Then there was an investigation.

Can you help us make a difference?

The Marshall Project produces journalism that makes an impact. Our investigation into violence using police dogs prompted departments from Indiana to Louisiana to change their policies. Thousands of cameras were installed in the infamous Attica prison after we revealed the extent of violent abuse by guards. Municipalities stopped charging parents for their kids’ incarceration because of our reporting. Supreme Court justices have cited us, along with incarcerated people acting as their own lawyers.

The type of reporting we practice takes persistence, skill and, above all, time, which is why we need your support. Thanks to generous readers like you, The Marshall Project has already raised just over $60,000 of our $100,000 goal during our year-end campaign. The funds we raise now are going to be essential to sustaining this important work. We’ve still got a long way to go to reach our goal, though.

To help us get there, a generous group of donors will be matching all new donations. They’ve pledged $100,000 in matching funds and are matching donations dollar-for-dollar until our December 31 deadline. Will you join The Marshall Project today and double the impact of your donation?
