Day 25: Old Friends And Teachers Remember Tsarnaev As 'Kind'

Download Audio

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 days after the FBI identified Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan as suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, there was a near universal reaction from anyone who had known Dzhokhar — shock and disbelief — saying it couldn't be. In Day 25 of the trial against Tsarnaev, Boeri and Cullen discuss an emotional day as the jury finally heard stories from former friends and teachers, painting a picture of a good kid — lost — and under the spell of his radicalized older brother.
