an excellent podcast.

extremely thorough, unbiased in investigation, exceedingly well done story telling. the story was very well conveyed and the fact that everyone had a say in their part and perspective was excellent. an example of injustice in the system on multiple levels. cheers to the outcome, and condolences to those who had to suffer and still continue to do so. no filler, straight to the point, dry cut solid facts. very well put together and presented.

Well done.

It’s hard to fathom that there are so many people behind bars that are innocent. This is one of the few podcasts I’ve listened to that actually has an outcome in favor of the innocent. Life is always going to be hard for Rosario and his family. While he’s a free man, he will never truly be free of the 20 years of experience in confinement. Heartbreaking and just one of thousands of examples of how the justice system fails us, and how jurors cannot be trusted to get it right.

No filler, one ad.

This one got to the point and relied only on the facts of the issue. I appreciate the genuine and respectful approach the host adopted.
