Description

Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the 'if it bleeds, it leads,' kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We're a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows.

Episode 95: The Job
Not long into his job as prison superintendent, Frank Thompson was asked to write the manual on lethal injection for the state of Oregon. Capital punishment had not been implemented in more than 30 years, and no one knew how to do it. Frank had to travel around the country learning how other states do it, and he asked his staff to practice. They simulated every step, including seating witnesses in the gallery, interacting with the press, and strapping each other to the gurney.Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.If you haven't already, please review us on iTunes!

This feels like the "13 Reasons Why" equivalent of podcasts.

Every other crime podcast pales in comparison. My only complaint is that it's not a weekly thing lol Perhaps my favourite podcast ever.

I like the podcast for the most part but every so often there is an episode that is not what I would consider a Criminal case. It's disappointing.

She could read a grocery list or a manual on how to program a VCR, and I would still subscribe to this podcast.... it would be cooler if someone was murdered while programming their VCR, and she made a podcast about it, but that would just be the proverbial cherry on top.
