For two and a half years, Emily Bazelon has been following people through a special court in New York designed to be a speedy machine for the harsh punishment of illegal gun possession. Along the way, a strange thing happened — the politics outside the courtroom started to change when a new generation of activists and insiders began challenging the old system the gun court was part of. Season 1 of Slate Presents brought you the story of Ruby Ridge, and Season 2 brings you a fight to transform one big-city justice system.

Great podcast but do NOT pay for plus

After paying $35 to get extra episodes outlying relevant policy, I could only find 5 minutes on bail. All the other extra episodes were unavailable.

Charged

I probably could enjoy the content, but will unsubscribe. Listening to the narrator’s vocal croak is just too annoying. Time for a voice coach.
