The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, the Voices Editorial Director and Executive Editor of Queer Voices at The Huffington Post, and the co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at Queer Voices. You can also follow Noah on twitter.

Recently, shows like Serial and Making a Murderer have brought the problems associated with the criminal justice system and the prevalence of wrongful convictions into the national spot light, and according to a new report from the University of Michigan Law School's National Registry of Exonerations, 2015 set a record for the number of wrongly convicted Americans who were finally exonerated.  The report details how many of these wrongful convictions were the result of law enforcement misconduct and false confessions which helped to land many innocent people in prison.  Joining me today to discuss the report and its findings is Stephanie Mencimer a Staff Writer in Mother Jones' Washington bureau and a Board member of The Fund for Investigative Journalism.  You can also follow Stephanie on twitter.
