This is the fourth episode of Jury Duty, a weekly podcast forum for the discussion of crime and justice storytelling, news and narrative analysis presented by Crime Story Media. 

This episode features a discussion between yours truly, Crime Story, Publisher/Editor Kary Antholis and Crime Story Editor at-large Sean Smith, focused primarily on our coverage of the pre-trial hearings in the prosecution of Robert Durst for the murder of Susan Berman.

Durst’s trial is scheduled to begin in early March.
