Welcome to the Justice Matters podcast, home of the Justice Matters series! The stories compiled here intend to explore the Sarasota, FL-area criminal justice system as completely as possible: through the voices, perspectives and attitudes of both the citizens and officials who call Florida home. Throughout the summer our reporters and contributors will be asking the question, "What should we try to accomplish with our justice system?" as a way to guide our thoughts and conversations. Justice Matters is a project of WSLR, an innovative, listener-supported, non-profit, non-commercial FM radio station dedicated to serving the Sarasota community.
