Jason Flom’s Lava for Good Podcasts — whose “Wrongful Conviction” series brings to light the wrongful incarceration of innocent people — has joined forces with the content network and podcast listening service Stitcher for a series of new criminal justice-focused podcasts. They will be available through Stitcher on all major podcast platforms.
“We’re excited to work with Stitcher and our sponsors to bring even more exposure to these compelling stories and our powerful new series at a time when more and more people across the political spectrum are drawn to join the quest for equal justice,” said Flom, founder and CEO of Lava Media and longtime criminal justice advocate. (Flom is also one of the most successful label heads and A&R reps of the past 30 years, signing Tori Amos, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Matchbox Twenty, 30 Seconds to Mars, Greta Van Fleet and Lorde.)
