What a sad list. People need healthier podcasts to listen to than news (on either side) or “true” crime.

This is the most disturbing detail. The idea that a more emotional than factual solicitation to subvert a long and repeatedly decided criminal case can be perpetrated through a slickly produced podcast truly bodes poorly for the future of criminal justice in this country. There is so much evidence and testimony against this guy that it makes the OJ trial outcome look honorable in comparison.
Did you follow Undisclosed? A factual account, grounded in the law, it exhaustively covered reasons why the conviction was unwarranted and unjust. There was also an excellent documentary on HBO and an excellent book written by Rabia Chaudry.

To state that the finding was "more emotional than factual" would indicate that you have yet to consume the immense body of evidence which at the very least convincingly shows the prosecution was unjust and unfair.

Read up on The Innocence Project. Sadly, there are many unfair and unjust prosecutions and convictions to keep those good people very busy indeed as they seek justice.

Oh snap. When I try to click on the links, it directs me to install the Podcast app! Yeah, I'll see if I can view these lists some other way, but otherwise, it'll be a "pass".
