74 Seconds

I produced and co-hosted 74 Seconds, a podcast from MPR News and American Public Media. The podcast won a Peabody Award and the Best Documentary: Gold Award from Third Coast.

On July 6, 2016, the world watched a man die, live on their phones, after a traffic stop in suburban Minnesota. This is the story of that man, Philando Castile, and the officer, Jeronimo Yanez, who went on trial in Castile’s death. The story sits at the intersection of race, policing, justice and safety in America.
