Ep 269: The Exoneration of CJ Rice

In 2024, CJ Rice was exonerated after serving 12 years in prison for attempted murder – a crime he was not physically capable of committing.

In this episode, we speak with CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who originally wrote about CJ in The Atlantic, and whose father, Dr. Theodore Tapper, played an integral role in the case.

Thank you: To Jake Tapper for speaking with us and helping us with this case.
