Apple announced that Slow Burn: Roe v. Wade is the first-ever recipient of the Apple Podcasts Award honoring a Show of the Year and its team for outstanding quality, innovation, and impact.

Hosted by executive editor Susan Matthews, the four-episode season explores the events leading up to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision, offering listeners an in-depth perspective on this universal and timely human rights issue. As part of the award, we created six Slow Burn Extras — brand-new episodes available for free exclusively on Apple Podcasts — about the making of Slow Burn, including never-before-heard personal stories, extended follow-up interviews with characters from the series, a roundtable conversation about the evolution of the Supreme Court featuring Slate’s legal experts, and a conversation with the Slow Burn team who created this award-winning season.

Slow Burn launched five years ago and is one of the all-time most popular shows on Apple Podcasts, downloaded over 100 million times. The first season has also been adapted into two TV shows: a docuseries on EPIX and a limited series for STARZ called GASLIT starring Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, Dan Stevens and more.
