And I also don't understand how the same DA is allowed to stay on the case over these 20 something years.
    So I just binged this, including all the update episodes. Astonishing case. And as with Season 1, great production and storytelling. The fact that itís possible Curtis might be tried for a SEVENTH time is mind-blowing. Canít wait for the new episodes and Season 3.

    Also started Accused, about a case in Ohio from 1978. The only suspect in that case was acquitted and since then the case was never investigated further. Highly recommended.

    So glad you enjoyed it. I think what also makes that season so good, is that she actually moved down to Mississippi for a whole year to investigate and research it. I just came across this series on Starz called The Wrong Man. They did two episodes on the Flowers case. It was ok, but they didn't go into as much detail as the podcast does. Also they made the guy who found the gun seem unreliable, whereas he seemed much more credible in the podcast.

    There are a few things which really infuriate me concerning this case. The fact that his conviction has been vacated multiple times due to prosecutorial misconduct, yet that same DA is able to prosecute him over and over again. The fact that the judge arrested a juror that didn't go along with the majority. The racial bias in picking the jurors multiple times. And the biggest frustration for me is the deals the prosecutor kept cutting with that other guy in return for him to testify against Curtis. That guy should have been locked up long ago. And now people have lost their lives because he wasn't. And to top it off he's pretty much sitting pretty in jail, having a grand old time while Curtis is locked up on death row, with no human contact and minimal sunlight. It's so messed up.

    I'll check out Accused when I get the chance

    Great new episode of Trump Inc. Really contextualizes a lot about the proposed Moscow tower. Highly recommended! Awesome production as always by WNYC.

    Mae, not sure if you've seen this yet, but Bob just announced that he's been working on a show about the West Memphis Three, and that's why he's been traveling so much. Can not wait for this!

    Oh wow, no I had no idea. I'm sure he'll talk about it on the next episode. But this sounds like a TV version of the WM3 season, or am I wrong? I guess toward the end of the series they'll have new evidence and such?

    Also, I know you're a busy bee, but did you ever go back and listen to Bob's other seasons?

    I'm hoping be goes into more detail about what the show will be like. Hopefully it's a quick summery and then he gets into some new investigations. He also said that season 5 of T&J will come back once the show starts. I think he posted it on twitter as well as fb, so maybe you can google his twitter feed to see it.

    And no not yet. I went on an audio book kick for a bit, but I should go back now and listen to some of them while I have some time.

    Crime podcast To Live and Die in LA is very cool so far. Nice twists and turns and very nice production value.

    Has anyone listened to Mick Garris's podcast Post Mortem? I listened to the recent episode he did with King and then have been going back and listening to some others. There's some fascinating interviews on there.

    Mae, I did it. 7 episodes into season 2 of T&J. The Kenny Snow case seems a bit confusing at the moment, although I just got to the point where it's revealed that the police possibly got someone to stand in for the real used car dealer in court. If that's actually true that's one of the most insane things I've ever heard. Also can't wait to hear about Ed Ates case.

    Oh I'm so excited for you, Heather, it's quite a case. Although, I suppose, it's wrong to be excited in a case like this, or about true crime in general. So yes, Season 2 is a long season and the initial dozen or so episodes will seem confusing (because they are) and slow, but trust me, just stick with it. Once they get into Ed, which should be soon, the case will change (it's still the same season). And Bob just released an update so please skip that one until you finish all of Season 2. Oh and that stand-in. It's true.

    I almost listened to the new episode, but since I'm not familiar with his case I skipped it and that's what prompted me to start at the beginning.

    The stand in really is true? I was really hoping it wasn't. That's pretty frightening. I hope the department got into serious trouble for that.

    Just started this amazing podcast, it's not new but new to me. It's called Caliphate and it's pretty disturbing, but also very informative and interesting: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...allimachi.html

    Highly recommended! Heather, I hope you can check it out.
