A travesty

It’s unbelievable that this kind of injustice can occur in our great country. How can a man be kept in jail with nothing but lies and no hard physical evidence tying him to a crime? What is going on with that DA?

I kept listening...

But, I found this so incredibly repetitive I hysterically laughed at times. In one episode over the course of a couple of minutes the same stat is repeated 6 times by two people in three different ways and then for minutes and minutes after, the topic is discussed over and over. It became comical and I feel like it was lengthier than needed at times.
That being said... I loved listening to this girls voice and she could read the phone book to me.
As a reporter, I found her to be incredibly kind to all of the people she interviewed despite some of them surely living in poverty, speaking poorly, and at times not even letting her off the front porch.
This Mississippian overall has enjoyed the podcast. ☀️🐄🏈
