There’s definitely no shortage of podcasts about crime and criminal justice. The podcasts below give a closer look at the system as a whole — whether that means investigating faulty trials and lackluster attorneys, questioning the problems inherently ingrained in some of laws an legal processes, and celebrating those who successfully make it out of the system and have gone on to live their best lives and help others.
