This week Nina is joined by Joel Waldman, Emmy Award-winning former network news correspondent and host of Surviving the Survivor podcast. Joel shares his experience as the first producer hired at MSNBC and how that eventually led to him becoming a reporter.

They discuss how social media has democratized the way the public views criminal cases and how the Dan Markel murder case changed the focus of his podcast. 

They also take a critical look at the role of media in high-profile cases like the Menendez brothers and the O.J. Simpson case. Finally they delve into the troubling case of Ellen Greenberg, unearthing the corruption in Philadelphia and showcasing how media can spotlight mishandled cases.
