Ep 51: Life On Death Row ft. Liliana Segura

Papuan teenager gets four months in jail for having a knife in his own home  - National - The Jakarta Post

Liliana Segura, senior reporter at the Intercept, joins us on this episode to talk about the tragic case of Brandon Bernard and the Trump administration’s rush to execute inmates on death row before he leaves office. We explore the extenuating circumstances affecting Brandon’s case and the change of heart jurors had after the sentencing. Additionally, we discuss the arguments against capital punishment and how it intersects with efforts to defund the police and reallocate those funds toward social programs.
