In this episode, Caroline Gorden and Christopher Birkbeck, authors of the new textbook Case Studies of Famous Trials and the Construction of Guilt and Innocence, speak with Jess Miles about the book.
They discuss the social construction of guilt and innocence, people’s morbid fascination with violent crime and why a single explanation of a trial verdict is always likely to be insufficient.
