In our inaugural episode, we take a look back to one year ago, when a viral video showed George Floyd being held on the ground for nine minutes, with white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on his neck. Since then, worldwide protests calling for racial justice sparked criminal charges, a trial and a guilty verdict. We also have our eyes on the future — and what Chauvin’s murder conviction means going forward in achieving justice and fair trials.

This episode was produced by Martín Macías. Music by The Dead Pens and Scott Buckley. A transcript of this episode is available.

Editorial staff is Bill Dotinga, Sean Duffy and Jamie Ross. Special thanks to Dustin Carswell, Andy Monserud and Mike Patton.
