    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. It shows that the prosecution’s already-tenuous motive for Cho is even less solid than they thought. At the same time, Cho’s behavior doesn’t do him any favors.

Good Investigating, Just Cut Ben Adair Out

Sharon Choi should lead the podcast as main host. She’s the translator and main investigator. Ben Adair doesn’t add much. He’s there to make the cadence seem like a back and forth conversation between the two. It doesn’t really work here; not organic. He should just step back.

Annoying dialogue

Could have done without Ben, no offense. He just didn’t add anything. The very scripted dialogue and poor, lackluster acting made it too cringe for me to get past the first episode.

Interesting case

Loved both Sharon and Ben. Besides their investigation and analysis, their voices are very pleasant. Well written, we’ll done!
