California Innocence Project Podcast


Hosted by Michael Semanchik, this podcast includes real-life stories told by exonerees including Amanda Knox, Brian Banks, Uriah Courtney among others. We also hear from famous investigators and attorneys who were featured in acclaimed documentaries like Making a Murderer, The Staircase, and the Survivors Guide to Prison. They will tell us the reasons innocent people get falsely accused and convicted in our criminal justice system.

Hear why an innocent person falsely confess, what causes misidentifications, and how our DNA gets on objects we never touched.
