More good news for Serial fans: there is another podcast coming out that will focus on wrongful conviction. The original series, called Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom, will be available on reVolver Podcasts and will detail the individual stories of people who have been wrongfully convicted. The episodes will be drawn from actual case files of the Innocence Project, and will feature exclusive details about exonerees’ experiences throughout their wrongful convictions. Research and data for each episode will also be provided by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan law and policy institute revered for their research and advocacy regarding mass incarceration.
Flom is an American music industry executive, CEO of Lava Records, and a Founding Board Member of the Innocence Project. To celebrate the release of the original series, the podcast host has pledged to donate up to $1 million to the Innocence Project, donating $1 for every consumer download from September through December. In discussing the podcast, Flom called for reforms to the criminal justice system and hopes that people will be inspired to join him in the innocence movement.
