Featured Episode: Dissecting the Death Penalty
by Jake Gray and Tiffany Jing
In this episode of "Low of the Land," Jake Gray and Tiffany Jing analyze the justifications and impacts of the death penalty, assessing rationales such as retributivism, deterrence theory, and consequentialist readings of the law. The CULR podcasters are joined by Robert Dunham, Executive Director of the Death Penalty Information Center, who addresses the arguments of death penalty advocates before evaluating the ways that the most harmful cases make their way up to the highest Court today. Tune in to hear more about the rates of wrongful convictions, Scalia counterfactuals, and more.
