In July 2008, the ACLU's Capital Punishment Project Director John Holdridge was interviewed on Pacifica Radio about the California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice report on the death penalty. John was interviewed with Bill Babbitt(PDF), whose brother Manny was executed by California in 1999.

They discussed how the death penalty in California is broken. There was also a discussion about the problems throughout the rest of the country.
