Gray Area Podcast A show about justice and redemption

Introducing Gray Area

I’m Julie Reynolds Martinez and for more than 15 years, I’ve reported on criminal justice in the Central Coast. I’ve analyzed our prisons and courts, covered hundreds of crimes, and sat through hundreds of criminal trials. And here’s the thing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked away from the courthouses in Salinas and Santa Cruz with something really bugging me.

It’s this thing called Reasonable Doubt. So many times, the defense attorney had me believing her client was innocent. And then the prosecutor would convince me of his guilt.

Gray Area tells the stories of people who are dealing with this whole thing we call justice, people who are trying to get beyond labels of right and wrong or good and evil to get to something bigger – redemption. Gray Area deals with some pretty heavy stuff, but it also lightens up when you least expect it.

Ultimately, here’s the question we’re hoping to answer: If we don’t believe in those extremes of good and evil, what DO we believe in?
