    Jason is a co-founder of The Innocence Project in the US which specialises in helping to gain freedom for those unfairly and wrongfully convicted of serious crimes. Usually just Jason and the exoneree in a free flowing conversation about how the unfortunate became convicted, and finally freed. So its a redemption story. CAUTION: Some of the stories of Law Enforcement, Prosecutorial and Judicial misconduct are jaw dropping and will make you blood boil as to how police and DA's KNOWINGLY send a guy (mostly) away for decades whilst the real perpetrator remains free to continue killing/raping .... One common thread is the clear sense that the exoneree had had to make peace with what happened to them and almost to man, instead of being filled with anger and rage, are in a zen like state and only talk about being happy to be free and and focused on making whatever time they have left on earth count. Several of these cases have moved me to tears. A VERY powerful pod. Start with S01 Eo4 the absolutely INSANE convictions of two people on opposite sides of the planet. Sunny Jacobs, a woman in Florida and Peter Pringle in the UK. Their lives converge after their respective exonerations. Sadly Sunny's innocent boyfriend was wrongfully executed in 1981 by electric chair under horrific circumstances. Many believe Jesse's botched execution was the inspiration for similar scene in Stephen King's book/movie The Free Mile. This ep is titled 'Love is Better than Revenge' and would bring a tear to a glass eye. Don't miss it
