“So based on Jason’s ask I’m writing to let you know how I’ve changed since listening to wrongful conviction.
First, I keep sharing these episodes with my friends and colleagues. And for those who won’t listen I tell them summaries of the stories myself!
Personally I know I’ve changed in 2 ways. 1. I did pre law in my undergrad with the goal of changing government policy for animal rights. It pains me to say I gave up on this after seeing how just 1 policy can take years to come to fruition. I wanted faster change. After listening to this podcast I’ve been reconsidering going to law school and dedicating the time to achieve my original goal as well as dealing with wrongful convictions.
I’ve also been a huge police tv watcher. I love law and order,csi, Chicago PD etc. I liked the drama and the resolution within an episode. After listening to wrongful conviction I still enjoy the shows for what they are but I realize they aren’t reality. For example I watched why women kill on Netflix today (ep 1) and I find myself poking all these wholes in the case against the woman based on what I’ve learnt through this podcast.
Ideally I would like to go back to law school. But at the very least I feel educated now to have these conversations with family and friends. Maybe one day I will be that swing vote on a jury!”
