Today we talk with a juror from a Los Angeles double murder trial where the defendant was a certain ill-tempered guy who appeared in movies (nope, not him - a different guy).
 
 
Our guest is Michael Schaffer, owner of Reason Real Estate and host of the upcoming podcast Reasonable Risk.
 
 
We discuss Michael's experience on the jury that convicted Lloyd Avery II, and we also highlight some of the serious problems with American criminal trials.
