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.
The guilt of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now in the hands of a jury. After 16 days of testimony, 95 witnesses and piles of evidence, the 12 jurors will now deliberate on the 30 charges against him. Today, on Day 17, Boeri and Cullen discuss the closing statements by the prosecution and the defense. The government closed with a highlight reel of graphic images from the bombing. And the defense closed by acting as if they were the prosecutors of Dzhokhar's dead older brother, Tamerlan.
