About Us

This is the story of the wrongful conviction of Brendan Dassey. When Brendan Dassey uttered “I’m really stupid Mum, I can’t help it” this was not the failure of a vulnerable teenager but the exposure of the systemic failings of Wisconsin's criminal justice system. This season join me as I step back into Manitowoc 2005 and explore and re-examine the factors at the heart of this profound miscarriage of justice.

The Defence: "Inexcusable"

"He believes you did it, Brendan," said Brendan's mother Barb. Brendan Dassey knew nothing of his Sixth Amendment right to effective counsel or that it should entail zealous advocacy - all Brendan knew was that his attorney Len Kachinsky thought him guilty ... and liked cats. Orchestrating his own downfall as he tried to turn Brendan as states witness, Kachinsky was removed and replaced by the flawed Fremgen and Edelstein. From colluding with the prosecution to a damaging suggestibility defence to Strickland and Sullivan, Wisconsin defence attorney and author, Michael Cicchini joins the Sixth Hour to unpack the legal complexity involved in the defence of Brendan Dassey.

The Confession: A Ghoulish Game of 20 Questions

We all have a breaking point. However, for 16-year-old Brendan Dassey, all that was needed was praise, feigned parental concern, and susceptibility to an interrogation technique used to elicit confessions from seasoned adult criminals. The mix was devastating for Brendan. As the first false confession expert to testify on Brendan's behalf in 2010, Dr. Richard Leo joins the Sixth Hour to illustrate the errors inherent in the March 1st statement that formed the singular piece of evidence used by the state of Wisconsin to wrongfully convict Brendan Dassey.

The Interrogation: Death by a Thousand Cuts

"Let's stop lying, especially to kids in our interrogations and interviews. It seems so contradictory that we would lie to get to the truth," says Dave Thompson, Partner and VP of Operations for Wicklander Zulawski. Dave joins the Sixth Hour to unpack the interrogations leading up to and including, the March 1st statement that sets in motion the wrongful conviction of Brendan Dassey.

Origin Story: About a Boy

When Making a Murderer focused on the plight of Brendan Dassey, who appeared not culpable for anything more than naivete about the processes of the Wisconsin legal system, it was then at its most poignant and its most disturbing.
