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.

by the end of the show I have no respect for the narrator. we all heard what happened. if Manny is guilty of anything it's doin ANYTHING to get Innocent people exonerated... and the law hates it poor folk ain't got a chance.

I'm happy that Gimlet advertised this so heavily on their other shows. When I had a chance to listen to the first episode, I was definitely wanted more by its end. Further, while the show starts off as a lone-wolf against the corrupt system, it evolves to add depth to every person involved, and while it did not lose its corrupt system narrative, it also kept me questioning my judgement of character of the other parties involved. This was a fantastic show, absolutely loved it.

Finished the series and loved it. Very well done podcast. A good listen even if you're only tangentially interested in the subject matter.

both links part 1 and part 2 are about the shady ass Bronx cops who stole the lives of so many black and brown people by making false claims of crimes that weren't committed by these people. David Terrell was a terrorist in the Bronx 42nd precinct.
