Closing out our True Crime Month of Mayhem.

Paco and George recap CENTRAL PARK FIVE with Kaseem Bentley and Lauren J. We get into Trump, false accusations, and American injustice. Special thanks to The Comedy Store and Mike Schmidt for engineering and recording time.

Filmmakers Ken Burns, Sarah Burns and David McMahon examine a 1989 case of five teenagers who were wrongfully convicted of raping a woman. After they had spent from six to 13 years in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.

Kaseem Bentley's no-holds-barred style commands your attention even when the check is dropping. Currently he doesn't have an agent, manager, or a million Twitter followers, but club bookers still take a chance on him. Kaseem has appeared on Viceland, NBC SeeSo, KQED, and Rooftop Comedy, and was named one of SF Weekly's Comics To Watch.

Lauren J is a Los Angeles based writer, podcast-crasher & dog mom. Enjoys long snacks on the beach and also, please don’t touch my hair.


June 8th we are recording a LIVE Sup Doc show after a screening of FREAKS AND GEEKS THE DOCUMENTARY (get tickets) at The Roxie Theater in SF. Panel includes director Brent Hodge and comedians Kelly Anneken and David Klein.
