Part II

We get to sit on juries and decide between right and wrong, fact and fiction, freedom, sometimes even life. So what happens when our heads are full of Serial and Making a Murderer. Or what if we're binging on old CSI episodes. Can we still be trusted to make the right decisions?

This episode features interviews with journalist Julie Szego, Professor Jeremy Gans and lawyer, Hina Pasha.
