Excellent Journalism

Listened to all episodes in one night. Was an easy listen. I appreciate the work and time that was put into this story and how your work led to the freedom of this innocent man. Most people don’t think to create an alibi of being out of state when their actually guilty.
This happens all too often where police, attorneys and judges don’t put in the real work and do their jobs. Police are biased and lazy and assume eye witnesses are always accurate. And judges and attorneys could care less about “some” people’s lives and their livelihood. This should’ve never happened but the American justice system is certainly UNJUST!

Last episode

I loved this podcast and it broke my heart that he had to spend all those years in prison and had such a botched investigation. However the most recent episode really bothers me, these people killed someone and want to get out and have a life, I’m sorry you took a life that never got a chance to have a life I don’t care how old you were when you did it, that person never got to live and you think you deserve to have a life?!

I enjoyed it

But when the story ends there are unrelated episodes appearing in this feed that have nothing to do with the 13 Alibis story. I thought they were new episodes but they aren't.
