A great season

As a resent law school graduate nothing covered in season 3 shocked me. Rather it confirmed what I already know about our justice system. What it did do was humanize the injustice and those facing it. I have worked as a public defender, and whenever I discuss these injustices with people they always say who cares, these people broke the law and they deserve this. This season, in my opinion did a great job of combating that. This season took that “criminal” who does not deserve justice and gives them a name, a voice, and a platform to share their story. This season has humanized them and exposed the ways the system has failed them. I truly hope that it has allowed people making these they deserve it claims see that no one deserves the things that happen and that justice in America is not necessarily justice at all.

Hooked!

Just started listening to season 3, then plan to backtrack through the first two seasons. I’ve seen some not so interested reviews for season 3, which makes me excited because I LOVE season 3 and can only hope 1&2 are even better. Amazing presentation and wonderful production. Great storyline/topic for discussion. Season 3 gives a very in depth look at the inner workings of the American justice system. Love it

Great for teachers

I loved season 1! Especially because I got to teach it at school with some great lessons for my high school students. I wasn’t impressed with season 2 so I didn’t listen to it but THEN you hooked me back in with season 3!!! I’m planning on creating some lessons/units to go along with season 3. I can’t wait to see what season 4 has to offer!!!
