Listen to Charged via Apple Podcasts or another podcast player.

We check in with Tarari and others as they complete their time in the diversion program and look toward their futures, and we hear from the people inside the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office about their plans to reshape their slice of the criminal justice system. This is the last episode of Emily Bazelon’s narrative miniseries podcast, Charged.

Slate Plus members get a bonus episode of Charged every week. This week, listen to a conversation between Bazelon and former Georgia House Democratic Leader Stacey Abrams, recorded at an event at the New York Public Library in April.

Charged is produced by Emily Bazelon and Alvin Melathe. The Plus episodes are produced by Chau Tu.
