In the newest episode of The Working Poet Radio Show, you'll hear about an unsolved murder trial, an exploration of how lawyers are creatives, and riffs on beer and Brian Williams, featuring Michael Semanchik of the California Innocence Project. He wrote a great blog post on Brian Williams, which looked at the complications of memory and how that applies to expert witnesses and his larger work with the Innocence Project, and I wanted to sit down and talk to him more about his work and how is role can be creative. We ended up discussing everything from DNA to a murder case that takes place in the rural parts of San Bernardino. Plus, in the third section of the podcast during the “True and False” portion of the show, we were joined by special guest Robert Lee of Circa Interactive. Take a listen below.
