A former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney sits down for some real talk, no BS (alright a dash of BS). We present an honest and entertaining exploration of the American criminal justice system and the inequities within, both the well-known and the inside baseball stuff. The guest list is a cross-section of all the players in the system, consisting of impressive, or at least funny, trial attorneys, current and former prosecutors, top shelf criminal defense attorneys, big firm corporate lawyers, civil rights lawyers, a legendary homicide prosecutor, and a reformed criminal. The conversations and war stories range from the philosophical, like the inequities inherent in a system where more money equals more due process, or an honest assessment of whether the goals of incarceration are met in any way (spoiler alert: no chance), to the silly--soulless sociopaths who fart on the subway or favorite Sopranos' characters. Pop culture references and questionable potty humor notwithstanding, we think there's some eye (ear) opening content that, at times, may even be important to share with y'all.
