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 death penalty. That's what 12 jurors quickly and unanimously decided is the just punishment for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for his role in the Boston Marathon bombings in April 2013. The verdict appears a rejection of the defense's case that Tsarnaev was brainwashed by his radicalized older brother Tamerlan, or the assertion he is remorseful for what he did. Boeri and Cullen discuss the tense final day in court.
