Crime & Justice Radio Celebrates One Year on the Air

Co-hosts and law partners, Bruce Barket and Aida Leisenring, discuss and debate crime and justice issues in the news and interview newsmakers about the full spectrum of criminal justice issues.

Bruce observed, “If people want an hour of informative and entertaining discussion on criminal justice issues that range from war crimes in the Ukraine to bail reform in New York, with two experienced lawyers, they should tune in to We offer “expert insiders and legal outcasts” as guests and provide the insight that only lawyers who have been in the courtroom have. For me, it’s fascinating. I learn something new every week, either while preparing for the show or listening to our guests.”

Aida added, “We try to make the show both entertaining and informative and give a nuanced perspective on issues and cases you can’t get anywhere else. Personally, the best part has been the fascinating guests we have been fortunate to meet through our show, and of course, sparring with my partners about bail reform or defenses on high-profile cases.”
