    Ep 8 of 10: Holes in the Case (Part 2)

    It’s courtroom 101: the prosecution’s trying to make a case, the defense is trying to get their client off, and it’s the jury’s job to figure out the truth. But how much of the science that’s presented at court is actually scientific? Ben and Sharon look closely at specific pieces of evidence presented at trial and find out that some of the bedrock assumptions about evidence and crimes… could be wrong.

    As part of Strangeland’s reinvestigation, Ben and Sharon have been keeping a list that goes way beyond culture clashes and misunderstandings.

Great content, good narration!

I really enjoyed this podcast. The case chosen was interesting and I appreciate the way the explored both the layers of evidence and the cultural aspects of the case. The combo of perspectives created a better picture for me to personally understand it, and - regardless of guilt or innocence - is a more complete version of this story in general.

A lot of reviewers have commented on the narration. It took me an episode or two to to feel the flow (I was still interested in the case), or maybe they were getting their flow too in the first couple episodes. I’m not sure. Either way, I still really enjoyed it!!

It’s scripted well and I like how they break down the episodes. Once I got used to their style it felt more natural. The female narrator speaks more slowly which just feels like her. If you are having trouble with the narration, give it some time. It’s worth the listen!

Decent

Interesting murder, but totally scripted. Sounded pre recorded and like it was pieced together, which made it hard to listen to.

Robin cho

The husband had access to the area in front of cho’s car and motive. Look deeper into that.
