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.

Awesome

This show was very well produced. At times I was happy and other times I had cried. This was just an all around great podcast.

Love it

We need more podcasts to report what’s going on the hood. I hope you cut Dwight off. That dude is lame. I hope they take him off p.c. And give him the proper treatment a rat deserves
