Podcast Mission: ‘Help To Prevent Even One Wrongful Conviction From Happening In The Future’
Music Executive Jason Flom has been on the board of the Innocence Project for 25 years. The non-profit investigative organization is dedicated to proving the innocence of those they contend were wrongly convicted.
Flom also hosts the podcast Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom. He says he started the podcast three years ago because, “I thought if I could help exonerees share their stories, and in so doing, help to prevent even one wrongful conviction from happening in the future – then let’s do that.”
