Bagli, who is covering the trial for The New York Times and CrimeStory.com, to discuss the day's arguments, as well as the fireworks that erupted between the parties once the jury left the courtroom.

Absolutely Phenomenal!

I wait with bated breath for each and every episode- a terrific podcast! Kary keeps the listener sitting on the edge of their seat and makes one feel like you’re sitting in the courtroom- I don’t want it to end! His other podcast Firebug is amazing as well!

John Lewin

So glad that Durst was found guilty and justice LONG overdue is now exacted. It’s a travesty that he was not convicted in Texas. Lewin is an avenging angel.

Innocent till proven guilty

You can definitely tell which side they are on which is frustrating because he is innocent until proven guiltyrigjt?? Sure he probably is guilty but it just bothers me how much they rag on the defense but never have any thing bad to say about the other guy??? Very repetitive maybe it’s just because I’m listening to them back to back. If it’s a lot of repeating clips not even just like oh we heard this last week they play the clips again. Otherwise it’s nice podcast interesting case just wish it was more fair.
