Shoddy work

Interesting story that would be a good one hour television show. Presenters mention repeatedly their experience in exoneration cases in an attempt to bolster their many unfounded opinions. As a lawyer, I was disappointed in the one sided story telling. It was somewhat hypocritical that podcasters criticized law enforcement in the legal case and proceeded to do same thing in their phantom defendants case. I wish NPR had done a much shorter version of this story.

Hardcore Vocal Fry

Story is not bad, evidence is not compelling.
