This show features a taking-circle-style dialogue on the topic of the criminal justice system within the United States. Our intention is to bring to you a variety of perspectives on this topic, to identify some of the significant flaws in that system and to indicate some directions for their remedy. We hope that this show sheds some light on lesser-known aspects of our criminal justice system for the benefit of our listeners.
