2/5/2018
More
Gregory Taylor spent 6,149 days (16.8 years) in prison for the 1991 murder of Jacquetta Thomas -- a conviction solidified by fraudulent testimony by North Carolina blood-splatter analyst Duane Deaver (the very same Deaver of “The Staircase” infamy.) He was innocent. Cameron Todd Willingham was convicted and executed for a house fire that claimed the lives of his three young daughters, but the forensic arson investigation was an exercise in mysticism, not science.

Episode 8: Slack-Jawed Yokels

12/8/2017
More
It’s hard to muster up reverence for the court and its officers when they’re slack-jawed yokels, like Kansas’ Thomas-Jefferson-loving Dennis Hawver.

Hold on to your butts! Theme: Silly Misunderstandings.

11/17/2017
More
Theatrics abound—for better or worse—as Lisa dissects the ransom letter from the JonBenet Ramsey murder scene. Porscha’s soapbox on the horrific kidnapping of Colleen Stan (The Girl in the Box) probes the patriarchy, the stigma of abuse, and BDSM dynamics. Theme: Ripped from the Headlines.
