Making a Murderer

DavidAdam and Vincent Minnucci have a spirited discussion about the 10-part documentary series that has enthralled viewers worldwide, Making a Murderer.

Using over 700 hours of footage shot since 2005, creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos chronicle the story of Steve Avery, a Wisconsin man who, after serving 18 years for a crime he did not commit, is released based on new DNA evidence.  The story doesn’t end there however, as he is once again arrested, this time for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

It’s a story full of twists and turns, exploring if it’s possible for a man to be wrongly jailed twice in one lifetime for some of the most heinous crimes anyone can commit.
