Launched February 19th, 2020, Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions is a powerful 13-episode podcast that tells the story of twelve real false confessions, using actual audiotapes from inside the interrogation room and diving deep into the disturbing psychological techniques used to extract confessions from innocent suspects.

Hosted by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, famed attorneys, co-directors at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law's Center on Wrongful Convictions, and central figures in the smash global hit Netflix docuseries "Making a Murderer," the Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions podcast asks – and answers – the question: why would an innocent person confess to a crime he didn’t commit?

From overnight interrogations to blatant lies, false promises of freedom, and death threats, Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions tells stories of ordinary people who found themselves in a criminal justice nightmare – trapped inside the interrogation room with no choice but to admit to crimes that they never committed.
