Criminal justice is a complex topic with many ethical streams. This week the team takes on a bird's eye view of justice in the prison industry, capital punishment and immigration, to name a few, and hidden factors many might not think of in these issues. They explore what it might mean to seek restorative justice, both in the ways we challenge our systems and in how we treat others. The episode ends with a new round of Famous Christians for 100, where they try to guess who said what in the media recently.
