I don’t really do podcasts unless they are about music,but I spotted a new one on the BBC about Rubin “Hurricane”Carter
You may well have seen the movie with
Denzel Washington or like me read one of the books on the subject

Basically a very high profile boxer and his associate were convicted of a triple murder, not once but twice

Basically 40 hours worth of audio cassette
Tapes were discovered featuring Carters version of events and a few of his rather controversial views on American society and it’s policemen of the era.

Having listened to the first three episodes I’m quite enthralled by it,although it has to be said he was a nasty piece of work
anyways it’s on BBC Radio world service or BBC Radio 4
