17 Going Mainstream – Giovanni’s TV Debut


We expand upon and review the ABC27 News recent television piece on Pennsylvania juvenile lifers’ resentencing and possible release following a January Supreme Court ruling, for which Giovanni Reid was interviewed by the channel’s anchor, Dennis Owens. In conversation with La Tasha Williams, we talk about how the public might have received the piece, and the drawback of juxtaposing the broader issue of juvenile lifers being released with Giovanni’s personal story of his innocence claim on a short, quick-fired 5-minute TV slot. We also have a bit of fun with Dennis Owens’ naming of this podcast!
