The Podcast Is In the Works

Oh, How I Love Me Some Podcasts!

The idea of hosting my own podcast has been spinning around in my brain for several years, now.

I got really fired up when I accidentally found the epic and groundbreaking SERIAL, hosted by Sarah Koenig. It only took one episode and I was hooked.

Season One of Serial was devoted to the case of Adnan Syed, who was convicted of murdering his classmate and former girlfriend, Have Min Lee in 1999.

Then came Undisclosed, with Rabia Chaudry, Susan Simpson, and Collin Miller, three attorneys who added even more “WTF?” questions surrounding the Adnan Syed trial.

The Truth and Justice Podcast

I wish I could remember all the ins and outs of how I found Truth & Justice, but suffice it to say, it’s the show that convinced me I could host my own show.

Lemme just say how much I love Bob Ruff and his show….

When his podcast started, Bob was a Fire Chief who just happened to be a fan of Serial and Undisclosed, and like me, he was really disgusted with the “justice” system.

I hope to go into more detail about this soon, but for now, if you haven’t had a chance to check out Truth and Justice, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.

The Impact of Podcasts

Annan Syed – Featured in Serial, Undisclosed and Truth & Justice

After 17+ years in prison, numerous appeals, several podcasts and droves of internet supporters, Adnan Syed has another chance at proving his case.

Only a few weeks ago, in July 2016, a Baltimore City Judge vacated Syed’s conviction.

Will he actually get a new trial?

That remains to be seen.

Kenny Snow & Edward Ates — Featured on Truth and Justice

Right after Bob Ruff began his show, he was contacted by a family member of Kenneth Leon Snow.

Kenny is currently sitting in a Texas prison, having been convicted of robbery in Smith County, Texas.

Kenny’s family is adamant that he did not commit this crime and asked Bob to look into it.

Bob Ruff did begin looking into the Kenny Snow’s case, which opened a whole new can of worms.

By diving deep into the case, Bob found some very odd similarities in another convicted felon’s case, Edward Ates.

Edward Ates was convicted of the 1993 murder of Elnora Griffin.

Oddly enough, it was Kenny Snow’s testimony that helped seal the deal for Edward Ates’ conviction.

Oh, yeah. There is NO physical evidence at the scene that ties Ates to the crime scene.

And then there’s Kerry Max Cook. Linda Jo Edwards was raped and murdered in June of 1977. Kerry was tried…several times and convicted of these crimes.

But guess what?

He’s out.

Exonerated.

All of these in Smith County Texas….the plot thickens.
