Love it! Love it!

Five stars all the way. This podcast is eye-opening & often distrubing and essential for those reasons. We cannot close our eyes to injustice. I've enjoyed each episode immensely, but particular favorites include Radio Silenced (and the in-studio for that episode), Death on a Dairy, Bail or Bust, and the unforgettable Life as Lady J.

My only complaint is having to wait so long for each new episode.

Why only about prisons?

This podcast's early episodes were wonderfully produced with interesting, unique perspectives on how the law functioned for everyone (not just criminals). Now, though, every episode seems to be related to criminals or wrongfully convicted people.

But criminal law isn't all that exists in the world, and I wish LotL would go back to what it talked about before—how the law affects *everyone* and not just people in prisons.

Every episode is about prison life! Mix it up a little bit. Remember that episode about the Supreme Court justices riding their appellate circuits? Why can you do that again?

an intelligent look at the law

I am consistently impressed by the high quality of reporting. I was especially impressed by the series on judicial elections.
