Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

Daisy-dueller ,

One of the best!

Court Junkie is a great look into the trial system, how frustrating and liberating it can be, and how different a trial can be state to state. Jillian’s voice is calming, I often listen to old episodes when I can’t fall asleep-something about her voice lulls me. Love it!

Doubi Dou ,

Advertisement overload

Interesting subjects but too many long adverts. Sometimes original sound clips don't bring anything new to the story.

Taichoocha ,

Droning on

I wanted to like this podcast, but the narrator isn’t a natural. I can read aloud better than her. Just sounds like she’s very bored and reads a script in a very stilted manner.
