Criminal defense attorneys Jessa Nicholson Goetz and Nicholas (Nick) Gansner discuss high profile trials, defense strategies, popular culture’s fixation on crime, and all other things related to criminal justice and criminal law. We try to use actual trial records and motions to explain how a verdict is reached in cases that surprise people, and to highlight some lesser known cases. We also like to talk about bail, criminal justice reform, juvenile justice, etc. We think we are kind of funny some days, and hope you do, too. Other days, we're pretty angry, and we hope you are, too. This is unedited and low-fi, so if you're skilled in sound engineering or production, we'll probably drive you crazy (apologies in advance.)

Jessa’s Voice VS Nick’s Voice

By Snowhoes - Oct 26 2019

Let me start by saying I quit listening for a bit due to family stuff. So I have been playing catch-up lately. To help me get through back episodes faster I have sped up the podcast. Now, I know that a lot of people dislike Jessa’s voice for whatever reason, but has anyone ever notice how fast Nick actually talks!!! 😂😂 I guess with it being sped up I’ve noticed it a lot more and can’t forget now! Not trying to attack just making a joke. I love love love the show guys! Keep it up! Thank you for doing what you guys do.

Keep it up
