New Podcast on the Sacco-Vanzetti Case
Ninety-nine years ago.
That’s when Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were arrested in Massachusetts for a crime they almost surely did not commit. They were convicted, but they “did not receive a fair trial,” according to a later statement by the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, an institution at the very heart of the case. The backdrop of the controversial case resembles in uncomfortable ways the times in which we live today.
Listen to a podcast about the case on “Most Notorious,” the true crime history podcast hosted by Erik Rivenes. It’s available on Stitcher, Spotify, iHeart Radio, and other platforms.
