DPIC Podcasts

DPIC is pleased to provide podcasts that discuss a wide variety of issues relating to the death penalty.

Our podcasts cover three different types of death penalty issues.

  • The "On the Issues" podcast series explores different factual, legal, and ethical topics relating to capital punishment.
  • A second series of podcasts details the history of capital punishment in each state. This series is currently in production, and we will be releasing new episodes periodically.
  • DPIC's current monthly podcast series is called "Discussions With DPIC." We speak with death penalty experts about timely death penalty developments in the news.
