In the Bronx, in the early 90s, two young drug dealers ruled an intersection known as “The Corner on Blood.” They lived large, wearing mink, drinking champagne, getting rich. Then their fraught relationship fell apart, dead bodies piled up, and one accused the other of a double homicide he didn’t commit. Or did he? We hear from the cops, the DA, the terrified eyewitnesses, the dealer doing life, and the dealer who put him there. They all tell their stories to award-winning journalist Steve Fishman, who has spent seven years untangling the twisted web of justice in the Bronx, and chronicling one man’s last chance to overturn his life sentence.

End prisons

Wow, last episode made me cry. A story to teach us empathy (albeit told in a very affected tone). Just one of many wrenching stories from the war on drugs.

Gripping & evocative storytelling

Calvin’s story is so unbelievably gripping in general. When you had in the way this story told, it nearly impossible to stop listening. I binged on this series in 1 day. I find Calvin’s positivity infectious. I really enjoyed hearing about previous prosecutors and the narrators perception of situations. I’d love to hear more like this but Calvin’s story is compelling because of his swag, which the listener can actually get a feel for. This is one of my favorite podcasts to date.
