Criminal defense attorneys Jessa Nicholson Goetz and Nicholas (Nick) Gansner discuss high profile trials, defense strategies, popular culture’s fixation on crime, and all other things related to criminal justice and criminal law. We try to use actual trial records and motions to explain how a verdict is reached in cases that surprise people, and to highlight some lesser known cases. We also like to talk about bail, criminal justice reform, juvenile justice, etc. We think we are kind of funny some days, and hope you do, too. Other days, we're pretty angry, and we hope you are, too. This is unedited and low-fi, so if you're skilled in sound engineering or production, we'll probably drive you crazy (apologies in advance.)

Who knew you could like a defence attorney?

Like true crime? Love trials? Thirsting for the details and how’s and why’s people get off? This is your podcast. Jessa is so intelligent and fun to listen to, Nick is a great match for her competitive talking and a balance of defence and prosecution. Fair warning, the first episodes have audio quality issues but the content is worth it! And it does improve!

I Love Getting Off

Both Jessa and Nick are incredibly intelligent and have so much to share. I love their humour and bold personalities. I also appreciate the lack of bells and whistles, no sound effects just a great conversation. Nick and Jessa you both have 🦍🍒!! If you listen to the podcast you know what that means, if not that means you should listen to this podcast.

Best. Podcast. Ever.

This podcast is my favourite! It brings true crime to a whole new level by going through trial transcripts and explaining legal concepts in a way that anyone can understand. Truly the best! And shut up about the audio quality... they are criminal defence attorneys that don’t have TIME to worry about that. It’s amazing they even have time for sleep.

Jessa and Nick - keep up the amazing work! We appreciate it!
