Shawn Rech and Brenda Schuler: Convicting a Murderer

Episode 23,   Jan 23, 08:00 PM

In 2015, Netflix released a 10-part documentary series, Making A Murderer, that explores the 2005 Manitowoc area homicide of 25-year-old photographer Theresa Hallback and the convictions of Stephen Avery and Brendan Dassey. The series became a true crime cult classic, leaving a lot of viewers with an overwhelming sensation that Stephen Avery had been framed.

But then, in 2023, director Shawn Rech created a response piece titled Convicting a Murderer. Today, I’m joined by Shawn Rech and Brenda Schuler, who features in the series, to discuss documentary ethics and an alternate version of the case against Stephen Avery.
