"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy." -- Martin Luther King
On today's episode, we welcome Marc Bookman, author of the new book A Descending Spiral: Exposing the Death Penalty in 12 Essays from The New Press.
With a voice that is both literary and journalistic, Bookman, a veteran capital defense lawyer and seven-times Best American Essays notable author, exposes the dark absurdities and fatal inanities that undermine the logic of the death penalty, wherever it exists.
