    Ep. 22 | Harvey Weinstein's Sentencing: 23 Years In Prison

    On Wednesday the Harvey Weinstein trial finally came to a close as Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.  Weinstein was convicted last month for sexually assaulting Mimi Haleyi and for raping Jessica Mann.  Before today's sentencing, Weinstein was facing up to 29 years in prison. The defense sought a small sentence of only five years and argued that Weinstein would be unable to survive in prison no longer than five years.  Additionally, the defense argued that Weinstein had already faced significant financial and personal losses due to the trial.  Weinstein will likely serve his sentence in Rikers Island jail in New York.

    Listen to this exciting (and final) episode of the Weinstein Trial Unfiltered as Harvey Weinstein is sentenced to prison.

    Ep. 21 | The Verdict

    Ep. 21 | The Verdict

    Finally -  a verdict in the case against Harvey Weinstein. But first there was discussion about  a mysterious letter received by the court claiming serious jury misbehavior. Is it true? Was it a prank?  Then the  jury presented their verdict  to the court - Weinstein was found guilty on two counts: criminal sexual assault and rape in the third degree. He was found not guilty of predatory sexual assault and rape in the first degree, the more serious charges. Weinstein was then taken away in handcuffs to prison. He will be sentenced on March 11.

    Ep. 20 | The Jury Deliberates

    In this special episode of The Harvey Weinstein Trial: Unfiltered, we recap some of the recent developments as the jury decides on a verdict. The jury has said they are deadlocked on two of the charges. They have been deliberating for almost a week and the judge has sent them back to continue considering a verdict. They gave no indication what their verdict would be in the other three charges. We expect a verdict as soon as this afternoon. In this episode we clarify the complex charges against Weinstein. We also discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution's case and what a possible verdict might look like.

    Ep. 19 | The Gag Order

    It was supposed to be a quiet day in court but the day opened with a bang with the prosecution accusing the defense of witness tampering and the defense demanding a jury member be removed for bias and lying about their bias.

    Then the jury began deliberating and started questioning the judge about his instructions. They also questioned the charges and combination of charges they are being asked to decide on. Has the judge helped tor added to their confusion? There were a lot of accusations flying and the judge put a media gag order on the defense. And then the jury left the room for the second time and we await the verdict.

    Ep. 18 | Dr. Elizabeth Loftus Discusses NYU's Decision To Cancel Her Distinguished Lecture

    Ep. 18 | Dr. Elizabeth Loftus Discusses NYU's Decision To Cancel Her Distinguished Lecture

    As there was no court on Monday - this special episode features an exclusive interview with Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, an expert witness for the Harvey Weinstein defense team. Dr. Loftus was recently scheduled to give a Distinguished Lecture at NYU, but the event was abruptly cancelled upon the announcement that she would testify for the defense.  This news came after NYU had purchased airline tickets.  According to Loftus, the plans had been in place for a long time. Dr. Loftus has asked several times but as yet no reason has been given for the cancellation. Dr. Loftus believes it is because she was expert witness for the Weinstein team. She discusses her disappointment with NYU's action as well as the importance of having free and open discussions on college campuses around the country.

    Is this another case of cancel culture? Harvard recently removed a professor from an internal post after students protested when he announced he was joining the Weinstein legal team.

    Ep. 17 | The Master Of His Universe

    The prosecution lashes into Harvey Weinstein in their closing arguments. Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Osborn describes him as "Master of His Universe" with all the "hallmarks of a predator," 'The universe is run by me and they don't get to complain when they get stepped on, spit on, demoralized and, yes, raped and abused by me - the king," she said claiming this was Weinstein's thinking.  But has she produced enough evidence for the prosecution to find him guilty?  Listen to the podcast to make up your own mind.   The jury will decide soon.

BEST PODCAST EVER

This podcast is the most riveting I’ve heard and literally commute 2 hours to and from work every day and this makes my drive feel like 5 minutes.
I listen to all the true crime podcasts and feel certain this will jump to #1. I’ve told everyone I know about it.

There should be more verbatim testimony podcasts like this! Your actors are INCREDIBLE! I get chills when I listen. And as for people saying you “speak over each other?” You both sound great and completely in sync, I wouldn’t change anything about your podcast, just please do more of them!! You are all AWESOME!🙏🏻

Shawn Q ,

Yes

Been hanging on every word.

More ,

Meh!!

The idea is great on how to re-create the trial with actors and actresses.
Unfortunately your biased opinions, tarnished the experience. It made me feel you were always on his side, doubting the statements of the victims.
You were not able to find a way to remember how to pronounce the last names, frequently apologizing for it. 🤦🏻‍♀️
I am not a troll btw.
