Every year, thousands of Americans are wrongfully convicted and imprisoned. Through DNA testing, more than 341 innocent people in the United States have been exonerated, and Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom will tell their individual stories. As part of an original series available on reVolver Podcasts, these exonerees will share never-before-heard aspects of their experiences with injustice, incarceration, and ultimately, survival.
Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom will deliver episodes based on actual case files of The Innocence Project. The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. The organization was founded in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. To celebrate the launch of the podcast, Flom has pledged to donate up to $1 million to The Innocence Project. From September through December 2016, he will donate $1 per consumer download.
Jason Flom, an American music industry executive and CEO of Lava Records, is a Founding Board Member of The Innocence Project. “These stories are real life tragedies and each one teaches us a lesson. Our criminal justice system is in desperate need of reform and we have hundreds of examples to prove that point. My hope is that when people download and listen to Wrongful Conviction they will be inspired to join me in this fight,” said Flom.
“We are honored to host Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom exclusively on reVolver Podcasts,” said Stephen Hobbs, Chief Digital Officer, reVolver Podcasts. “This is an incredible show, and a reminder that we must be ever vigilant of the justice system, to ensure we are truly protecting the innocent.”
The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law will provide research and data for each episode of Wrongful Conviction. The Brennan Center is a nonpartisan law and policy institute whose research and advocacy on issues surrounding mass incarceration is universally respected.
