Welcome to our weekly review of the events at crimestory.com.
Last Saturday, January 25, 2020, marked the 25th anniversary of the beginning of oral arguments in the trial of The People v O.J. Simpson for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. This past week, Crime Story commemorated that anniversary by presenting a series of special interviews related to the way the historical narrative of the trial has been preserved for posterity.
On Monday (link here) and Tuesday (link here), we presented a two-part interview with Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, the creators of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning limited series The People vs. O.J. Simpson.
On Wednesday (link here) and Thursday (link here), we presented a two-part interview with Ezra Edelman the producer and director of the Oscar and Emmy winning documentary epic, O.J.: Made In America.
And on Friday (link here), on a special episode of our Jury Duty podcast, we presented my exclusive interview with Bill Hodgman who had oversight responsibilities for the team prosecuting O.J. Simpson: Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden.
Also, you can hear me talking about putting this week together, the OJ trial and a bunch of other Crime Story related topics on the Josh Marshall podcast here.

We close this week, as is our habit, with Hannah Teich’s curated selection of some of the more interesting stories from Crime Story Daily over the past week.
Hannah, who edits this Daily section, groups the aggregation into four general topic areas: criminal justice policy reporting; muckraking/watchdog reporting; complex crime storytelling; and stories that examine the impact of criminal justice and true-crime in the culture.
