Great series with interesting individuals and storylines that make it feel like fiction until you remember that this involves our flawed justice system and people who are impacted by it.

Outstanding and well made. I really enjoyed and found this series highly enlightening.

Description

Manuel Gomez is a detective straight out of a detective novel. He carries a pen that’s really a knife, wears a watch that’s really a camera, adores Sherlock Holmes and Miami Vice. But the cases Gomez takes on are all too real: cases of young men in New York City who say they’ve been arrested for crimes they didn’t commit. In the first season of Conviction, reporter Saki Knafo follows Gomez as he tackles the biggest case of his career—and along the way, Saki explores big questions about criminal justice in America. This story is the first in Gimlet Media’s Conviction series, which will feature a new piece of investigative reporting each season. This show includes strong language and descriptions of violence, and may not be appropriate for sensitive listeners.

Episode Date
Introducing The Clearing
2923
Listen to the first episode of this new true crime podcast from Pineapple Street Media and Gimlet.<br><br>When April Balascio was 40 years old, something she’d feared for decades was finally proven true. Her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, really was a murderer. The Clearing is about what came after April called a detective in 2009 to tell him about her suspicions — a call that led to her father’s arrest and eventual conviction on multiple murders — and tracks the emotional journey as she and host Josh Dean dig back into her childhood, unravel the truth of her father’s life, and overturn a viral online narrative that had turned Edward Wayne Edwards into a kind of serial killer caricature. <br><br>Find episode two and more at&nbsp;<a href="http://gimletmedia.com/the-clearing">gimletmedia.com/the-clearing</a>.
