Marking the dividing line between the 20th and 21st centuries, the September 11 attacks quickly became the hinge upon which so much changed. Many watched the tragedy unfold live on television, but most still don’t understand what happened that day. Twenty years later, a quarter of Americans are too young to even remember the attacks.

While thorough, large-scale efforts like the 9/11 Commission tried to make sense of that chaotic day, many questions remain.

Hosted by bestselling author and investigative reporter Garrett M. Graff, Long Shadow is an eight-episode podcast that attempts to answer those questions and explore other enduring mysteries surrounding 9/11.

Published in August 2021 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the attacks, Long Shadow quickly became Apple’s number one history podcast.
