Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

    16 Shots: Laquan McDonald

    16 Shots: Laquan McDonald

    In October 2014, the shooting death of Laquan McDonald by a Chicago police officer went almost completely unnoticed by the media - at least initially. But after a large settlement was made by the City of Chicago to Laquan McDonald’s family, journalists started asking questions. Pretty soon, the details of what happened would be revealed, and Officer Jason Van Dyke would be charged with murder.

    Ep 120: Forbidden Love and Feigned Diseases (Godejohn Trial)

    Dee Dee Blanchard was found murdered in her home in June 2015, and her daughter, Gypsy, whom she had always touted as having special needs, was missing. Investigators would soon uncover that everything wasn’t as it seemed, and Gypsy, along with her boyfriend Nick, were arrested for murder.

    In this episode, we delve into Nick Godejohn’s murder trial. No one disputes that he was the killer, but the question of “why” takes center stage at trial.

Good God

Don’t play this podcast when you are in the shower or away from your phone and can’t easily fast forward. There are an excessive amount of ads that are sometimes up to 5 minutes long.

Great Podcast

I knew the subject matter would be interesting, but I was SUPER IMPRESSED with the audio quality. The narrator's voice is clear and pleasant. She stays on task and keeps the podcast on track. I've tried a LOT of crime podcasts since quarantine began. I usually stop after an episode due to poor audio, irritating asides, and/or monotone presenters. Love this podcast!!!
