Legal Wars

The courtroom can be a battlefield over money, people’s rights, and even their lives. For some cases, the consequences can affect us long after the verdict is read.Based on extensive interviews and court transcripts, Wondery’s new podcast LEGAL WARS puts you inside the jury box of some of the most famous court cases in American history, including Hulk Hogan’s courtroom wrestling match with Gawker, the battle for free speech on the internet, and the Rodney King trial that set off the LA Riots. Host Hill Harper, actor and Harvard Law School graduate, brings you the drama, the larger-than-life characters, and the real-world impact these cases had on our society.To hear more episodes, listen exclusively with Wondery+.

    Wondery Presents: The Trial Of The Chicago 7

    When protesters descended on the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968, they came to peacefully protest racism, politics and the country’s involvement in Vietnam. But the whole world watched as the police beat and arrested protestors. The conflict became the spark that ignited a revolution, and the men who led the protests were put on trial--which came to be known as “the Trial of the Chicago 7.” From Wondery, the makers of American Scandal and American History Tellers, comes this incredible true story about the defendants charged with inciting riots and conspiracy. And the culture war that followed. Hosted by the lawyer, actor, and activist Hill Harper.https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-trial-of-the-chicago-7/id1534643713
