Description

Cafe Studios presents Doing Justice, hosted by Preet Bharara. Justice is about doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons. And it's about making sure that no one is above the law. Doing Justice is CAFE's new narrative podcast, based on host Preet Bharara's bestselling book.

In each episode Preet explores the key elements of a case from the unique perspective of the prosecutor whose job it is to grapple with urgent moral and legal questions. Should we allow an elected official to run for re-election while he’s under investigation? Can we prosecute a police officer for planning to kidnap his victims?

Preet is the host of the hit podcast Stay Tuned and is the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. It is not always clear how justice works, and he is the perfect person to take us through each investigation, unravel a mystery, and ultimately show us how things can be made right again.

Subscribe now to Doing Justice - from CAFE Studios, produced in partnership with Transmitter Media.

Excerpt – God Forbid
221
Doing Justice is the new podcast from CAFE Studios, home of Stay Tuned with Preet. In this excerpt from an upcoming episode, we meet the FBI agent who reviewed the case of a police officer planning to kidnap, torture and eat his victims. This case was very different from the action movie stuff he was used to, one that would change the way he understood the world and what other people were capable of. This case looked more like the plot of a horror film. Doing Justice is hosted by Preet Bharara and explores cases from the unique perspective of prosecutors grappling with urgent legal and moral questions. Each episode of Doing Justice explores a case, tells a story and defies expectations. Subscribe now, wherever you're listening. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
