Manuel Gomez is a detective straight out of a detective novel. He carries a pen that’s really a knife, wears a watch that’s really a camera, adores Sherlock Holmes and Miami Vice. But the cases Gomez takes on are all too real: cases of young men in New York City who say they’ve been arrested for crimes they didn’t commit. In the first season of Conviction, reporter Saki Knafo follows Gomez as he tackles the biggest case of his career—and along the way, Saki explores big questions about criminal justice in America. This story is the first in Gimlet Media’s Conviction series, which will feature a new piece of investigative reporting each season.

This show includes strong language and descriptions of violence, and may not be appropriate for sensitive listeners.

Twists and turns!

Easy to listen to (narration)..Interesting without being too cheesy! And, it’s a story that sheds light on an ongoing black hole of injustice occurring in the “good ol USA”...sickening what these youths have to endure. Let me know where the legit go-fund-me’s are. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

I’m a tough critic when it comes to true crime podcasts— this one is totally worth the listen!!!

So good!

I’ve listened to pretty much every crime related podcast and have been searching for something good. This one hit the spot. Nice work!
