The Finish Line podcast is hosted by WBUR’s David Boeri and The Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen, who share their insights and analysis in the federal death penalty trial of admitted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

In the second week of the trial, attention in the courtroom has turned from what happened to why it happened. Boeri and Cullen discuss the defense's focus on Tsarnaev's Twitter feed, and on a nine-minute surveillance video showing Dzhokhar and his older brother Tamerlan walking down Boylston Street on Marathon Day — and why Tamerlan appearing to lead the way could be so meaningful.
