Incredible Listen, Every Episode
I honestly would not have believed these events were real or representative a year ago. The host does an excellent roundup of malfeasance in the criminal justice system, and more importantly, provides receipts. If you can’t believe this is real and think it’s sensationalized, I’d encourage you to listen to more episodes and check out the show notes.
The host was graduating from law school the year I started, he was well respected and if you listen to this podcast you’ll understand why.
Do you want to know exactly how systemic racism, oppression, police violence, and gross injustice are allowed to run rampant in the “land of the free” in the 21st century?This show gives you the blow by blow, and is punctuated by exquisite legal analysis without a jot or a tittle of pompous jargon.
I hate to use the word “entertaining” as it relates to such deadly serious subject matter but the delivery will keep you engaged as well as enraged.
This is important material and the show deserves to be widely listened to and supported.
A functioning democracy that lives up to its aspirations depends on a well informed and active citizenry. If we have any hope of slowing racist state violence and authoritarian rule by the enforcers of capitalism, we best pay heed to this show and support legislators who will move us forward.
This show is entertaining, informative, and important. A great find in a deeply disturbing time.
Welcome back buddy!
Thanks for continuing to shed light on this important topic.
