“For the Defense,” a rakontur Podcast Chronicling Famous Defense Attorneys and Their Most Fascinating Trials Launches Its Second Season on January 26, 2021

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE) – Following the acclaimed premiere of the For the Defense podcast, David Oscar Markus and Rakontur will release the second season on January 26, 2021. The podcast focuses on the work of the least respected, but perhaps most important, profession in America: the criminal defense lawyer.

In every episode, Markus interviews a top criminal defense attorney about one of their most exciting lawsuits. Markus, a Miami litigation attorney known as the “reincarnation of the old-school defense attorney,” who has represented clients from the heads of the Cali cartel to Fortune 500 companies and their CEOs, continues his partnership with Rakontur, the famous storytellers behind on Cocaine Cowboys, ESPN 30 for 30’s The U, and HBO’s 537 votes to tell these important litigation stories from a trial attorney’s point of view.

Season 1 highlights include Tom Mesereau (Michael Jackson), Donna Rotunno (Harvey Weinstein), Roy Black (Ofc.Luis Alvarez) and F. Lee Bailey (Sam Sheppard).

Season two features:

  • Alan Dershowitz (OJ Simpson)

  • Jose Baez (Casey Anthony)

  • Ron Sullivan (Aaron Hernandez)

  • Rob Cary (Senator Ted Stevens)

  • Jayne Weintraub (Jahwe Ben Jahwe)

  • Abbe Lowell (Senator John Edwards)

  • David Gerger (Deepwater Horizon)

  • Michael Tigar (Terry Nichols)

Markus has tried cases across the United States and is well positioned to speak to other leading criminal defense lawyers in the country and examine with them the decision they made on a high profile case to go to court, including their litigation strategy, risks and the customers themselves. Florida Bar has approved Season 1 for CLE credits, and Season 2 is currently being approved.

Season 1 is currently available on all podcast platforms including Apple, Spotify and Google. Season 2 kicks off on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, and new episodes will be available every Tuesday.
