Pitt Law Professor David A. Harris Debuts New 90.5 WESA-produced Podcast, Criminal (In)Justice
University of Pittsburgh legal scholar David A. Harris—a preeminent authority on issues related to racial profiling and police procedure—has developed a new podcast series titled Criminal (In)Justice. Produced by 90.5 WESA’s Josh Raulerson, Criminal (In)Justice examines issues surrounding America’s justice system through interviews with leading figures in the field. The first episode of the eight-part podcast series will go live March 29 at criminalinjusticepodcast.com; subscriptions are free.
To celebrate the podcast’s launch, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and 90.5 WESA will host a listening party, featuring a conversation between Harris and Raulerson and excerpts from upcoming episodes. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. March 29 in the Alcoa Room of Pitt’s Barco Law Building, 3900 Forbes Ave., Oakland. Business-casual attire is recommended. Media are welcome to attend and cover the event; RSVPs are encouraged for the general public at http://law.pitt.edu/events/new-event/david-harris-criminal-injustice-podcast-listening-party.
“Criminal (In)Justice digs deep into hot-button issues, going into the substance of matters that more traditional methods of news reporting may not have the legal acumen to touch upon,” said Harris.
“I look at Criminal (In)Justice as a teaching platform, but it’s nothing like a lecture. It’s a conversation between friends about these important questions. This podcast gives me the opportunity to discuss the law in new and exciting ways, featuring guests who love talking about their experiences as much as I love talking about these issues.”
