I really enjoyed this podcast until the Jens S case. I think it would benefit from more balance. Whilst there is no question that the process that was followed to convict him was faulty and lacked/misled about crucial evidence, that doesn’t mean he is innocent and I think Knox is too quick to be determined to liken this to her case and state that he is unequivocally innocent. These are not the same cases, and a prosecutor mounting a good prosecution cannot be seen as unfair - that is a tenant of justice. I also think that the suggestions that because he is nerdy and nice could not have done this are ridiculous, and that the FBI profile could not have allowed for him going to the house and introducing himself as her boyfriend and gaining entry that way. I think this is a great podcast but I just think more balanced views, discussions of evidence and less definitive statements would be helpful.
