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.
For the first time in this case the jury got some insight into what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev thought of his bombing victims. "No one deserves to suffer like they did," Tsarnaev said to Sister Helen Prejean, a prominent opponent of the death penalty, according to her testimony. Prejean revealed that she has met with the defendant five times while he has been in detention. In Day 30, Boeri and Cullen discuss Sister Prejean's testimony, the end of the defense's case in the penalty phase, and the prosecution's rebuttal.
