Deliberations

Published by: AudioBoom
101 Episodes | First Released: Aug 9 '17
What really happens when a jury retires to deliberate? Find out each week on Deliberations, a modern day, improvised audio drama that allows criminal justice enthusiasts to step inside a jury room. Each season explores a different courtroom drama inspired by real life criminal trials in the news. Six improvisers serve as the jury and passionately react, negotiate, and argue opposing interpretations of the evidence. Season Two examines the rights of accusers and defendants in cases of sexual misconduct. Tallahassee college student Keith Montgomery stands accused of rape, leading jurors to face the question: who is lying? Season One explores the murder trial of dominatrix Samantha Hall, charged with murdering her submissive lover with a rope. Was it an erotic asphyxiation gone awry or a premeditated killing?

One of my absolute favorites

I love this show. I feel like I have learned so much from it, about so many topics. I love hearing the jury deliberate and seeing how their points of view shift as the trial progresses.

Listening Again

Love this show, and since season 4 just ended, I decided to go back and listen again. OMG I cannot stand the argumentative girl in season 2! She’s worse than Carl in season 1! Just so angry and rude and stuck on her own opinion. I know this is a cast of people with roles, but man she just pisses me off! Makes for and even more entertaining show though! Keep up the great work! I cannot wait for season 5!!!

Love, but season 4 seems to be having an audio problem?

This podcast is AMAZING! It’s so clear how much thought goes into these stories and I’m so drawn into what’s happening. The jury breaks add more real life depth to the story and I can’t stop listening! My only complaint is that some episodes the voices are sped up and sound like chipmunks and it’s too quick to follow. Not sure what’s going on there - but hopefully there’s an easy fix!

Dropped the ball on Aziz Ansari

I was deeply distressed after listening to the unidentified male host make EVERY EXCUSE for Aziz Ansari. He says that going to someone’s apartment signals possibility for sex. Nope. Nope. Nope. Grace says she doesn’t want to have sex that night, but maybe on the second date. And the host says, “Whelp. She says there might be a possibility of a second date.” Just so everyone is clear, women will say “maybe on the second date” so that they can get some distance to decide if that second date is even within the realm of possibility. More than likely, had he stopped there and they parted ways, she would have recognized her feeling of fear was NOT a positive experience and never been alone with him again. But the most disgraceful was at the very beginning when she verbally expressed “let’s slow down,” and the host says, “Well. That’s not specific enough!” And the female host disagrees. Let me tell you something. If I was ever putting the moves on a girl and she said “let’s slow down,” I would KNOW. Like MESSAGE RECEIVED. There is no need to interpret that whatsoever. Shameful. And then he’s like hey lemme shove my fingers down her throat. That’ll put er in the mood! Absolutely appalling.

Phenomenal Podcast

I hope the creator of this podcast reads this review. You create amazing stories and dialogue, and obviously attempt to remain unbiased on issues that we face today. I always have to wait until a season is over because waiting a week between each episode is torture! I get so angry when you apologize because there are idiots out there that don’t understand the podcast is fictional and based on real events. We all know that the characters created, especially jurors, do exist in this world. We don’t like it, but they exist and end up on juries. I’ve been a victim of sexual assault and NOTHING in your podcast has ever offended me. It’s a story. You do amazing work! I’m going to Patreon now to start donating. Don’t let haters get you down!

Interesting insight into the minds of jurors.

I’ve listened since this podcast started and it has always brought some interesting points/ideas/thoughts to the forefront during each season. Not to mention, Chelsea presented to the world: Jessa. And Jessa with her partner, Nick gives us, Getting Off. Thank you!!!!!

Huge Fan

I am fascinated by the jury process in the United States. This partially scripted podcast does an excellent job of showing how difficult a jury room can be. You are a fly-on-the-wall in the jury room and can listen and analyze the deliberations. And if you want to learn more about cults, Season 4 is fantastic.

New season lacks entertainment

Really enjoyed the first and second season of the show a would recommend listening.This season is difficult to listen to. The angry black man and black women characters in this season play off of some many stereotypes and have been unable to listen to an entire episode.Hope it gets better next season.

Started strong but...

The first season was amazing. Was quite excited about the second but sadly it was ruined by the tedious obsession with statement analysis and an ending that cowardly and weak. Despite the previous season, I looked forward to the third only to find it bogged down with interpersonal details of the jury

LOVE LOVE LOVE

This was the first podcast I’d ever listened to and I literally couldn’t stop listening. Chelsea Cox has created such a unique and engaging set up - it’s interesting and entertaining, but also educational! I learned so much listening and it forced me to really think about my own biases. Love this podcast and cannot recommend it enough!!

I’m Hooked!

I’ve always loved the courtroom, and I often sit in courtroom trials during my summer breaks. Now that I’m going back to work, I can still get my fix of feeling like I am immersed in court trials!
