The best podcast

Sarah, I have been so addicted to this podcast! I binge listen and re-listened. My brother is currently incarcerated with possibility of parole soon. He worked with the innocent project and they pushed hard, but sadly nothing came from the help they gave. Season 3 made me furious at what happens on the daily in our criminal justice system. My family and I (hard working Texans) watched as our family member was railroad all for the sake of justice. To hear how these judges spoke to people (humans.. yes they committed crimes) but to talk to people with such hate saddens me. We have forgotten about innocent until proven guilty. Thank you for opening your heart and spending so much time telling the truth and showing your listeners how it is... Color, money and who your family is plays a big role in sentencing. You spoke to these “hardened criminals” like they were people who mattered. The respect and love you showed them made me tear up while listening! I am blown away!! You my friend (can I call you that) are special!!!

Thanks from a forever listener,
Tulana
