At the beginning of today’s show, Marc spoke briefly with Congressman John Sarbanes about the economic stimulus legislation that’s making its way through Congress.

Then, Doug Colbert and Page Croyder are each passionate about criminal justice reform – but they have very different ideas on what ideal reform would look like. Today they came on The Marc Steiner Show to discuss their ideas on representation for defendants at bail hearings, the booking process, and how to change the system.  You can read their thoughts about criminal justice on the Marc Steiner Show website.
