We are back! Welcome to Season 2 of DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation! We are kicking it off STRONG with power couple, David Rudolf and Sonya Pfeiffer - married attorneys who are now focused entirely on wrongful conviction cases. You will hear all about how their podcast came to be and their impassioned perspectives on the American criminal justice system. You probably know David from his work representing Michael Peterson, and his scene stealing presence in Netflix's The Staircase, but this might be your first introduction to Sonya, an award winning journalist who covered the Peterson trial, and then decided to go to law school. Together, they now practice law  together. Sonya and David are also owners of a contemporary art gallery in Durham, NC, and if you think that isn't relevant, just wait until the end of our conversation! Thank you, David and Sonya, for killing the small talk!

This episode is perfect for anyone interested directing an art gallery, criminal defense, television reporting, the practice of Ahimsa, and the once chance we have in life.

IN THIS EPISODE

  • Sonya describes the Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art, how she goes about creatively directing, the topics that interest her, and what she hopes the Gallery becomes.

  • She considers whether a fine arts gallery that sells at a price point that only a few people can afford is in fact inclusive.

  • She discusses her law firm’s statement of values, why standing up to the power of the state is personal to her, and seeing the humanity and perspective of another person.

  • Sonya talks about politics, Catholicism, Olympic development soccer, and a playground incident that taught her lesson about empathy and privilege.

  • She explains why she and her sibling became storytellers, her desire to become a foreign correspondent, and what taking unconventional paths says about her personality.

  • Sonya talks about the Michael Peterson case, how other reporters would have described her, her significant scoops, and the Owl theory.

  • She shares how her relationship with David Rudolf came about, what drew them together, and answers whether she thinks of her and David as a power couple.

  • Sonya reflects on her spiritual journey, her concept of God, her practice of Ahimsa and Yoga, and the one chance she has in this life.

Her focus and expertise is on wrongful conviction cases—in this episode, we explore two such cases. What’s fascinating is that our guest’s former life in television and film, and her current one as a barrister, were transformed by one extremely publicized case, the trial of Michael Peterson, which was the basis of the Netflix series, “The Staircase.”
