From the day the FBI arrested him in 2003 and told him the government was seeking the death penalty, Benjamin Frandsen labored fiercely for his release. His case was overturned twice on appeal (his third trial will likely be overturned again this year), and he was found suitable for parole three times in a row. Five separate times he beat LIFE in California. After 18 years fighting a sentence that began as Life Without the Possibility of Parole, the Parole Board finally released him on December 10, 2021
This week, Ben dives deep with his former colleague and longtime friend, Peter Shiao—financier, activist, financier, global mediator, and Founder/CEO of Immortal Studios. They delve into prison reform, embracing the possibility of redemption, and how to find the hero in all of us.
