Lava for Good has released details of a slate of new podcasts. In a similar vein of its Wrongful Conviction flagship series, the new shows will tackle criminal justice and death penalty issues.

The list of shows in the works includes Then Who Did It? a podcast that looks into the broader impact of every wrongful conviction: a victim left without justice, a grieving family left without closure, and the actual perpetrator potentially still at large. The new series investigates cases left unsolved when an innocent person is convicted. It is hosted by activist, and true crime journalist Lori Rothschild Ansaldi.

Lava for Good’s upcoming War on Drugs podcast examines the true cost of America’s five decades of policy, policing, and persecution of drug use. It will examine the ways the so-called war on drugs has fueled mass incarceration, exacerbated addiction, and hampered economic progress.

Also coming is an eight-episode docuseries on the notorious case of Toforest Johnson, a man who has been on Alabama’s death row for 24 years for the shooting death of an Alabama police officer — a crime he and many others insist he did not commit. The former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, the former Alabama Attorney General, and even the District Attorney have all called for Toforest’s conviction to be overturned before it’s too late. Yet, Toforest Johnson remains behind bars, facing his state-ordered execution. Beth Shelburne, an investigative reporter for the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama’s Campaign for Smart Justice, narrates the story of her two-year-long investigation into this deeply troubling case.

Lava For Good will soon be announcing new shows from Josh Dubin of Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science, and Laura Nirider of Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions, and a brand new production from author Gilbert King focused on his contact with a convicted serial killer who has confessed to brutal crimes for which another man has been convicted.

Founded and led by renowned media and music industry executive and justice activist Jason Flom, along with Lava Media COO Jeff Kempler in association with Signal Co. No1, Lava for Good has to date had 25 million downloads and it has been most closely associated with the Wrongful Conviction series. Earlier this year Lava for Good struck an alliance with Stitcher for distribution and advertising sales to increase its reach and monetization.

Flom also hosts the Righteous Convictions series which will kick off a new season on October 26 featuring an interview with Sir Richard Branson. The series features a diverse who's-who of cutting edge activists at the forefront of the most critical issues of the day. Flom’s discussions with these thought leaders and changemakers uncover and inspire the most powerful actions people can take for reform, equal justice, and a better world for all.
