Introducing "The 4%" podcast

Unravel the story of wrongful conviction, exoneration, and the pursuit of justice in this collaboration between Zapier and the Georgia Innocence Project.

By Zapier Editorial Team · April 24, 2023

Zapier is thrilled to announce the launch of "The 4%" podcast, a groundbreaking limited series that explores the story of Kerry Robinson's wrongful conviction and the relentless pursuit of justice that led to his freedom after nearly two decades behind bars. This gripping podcast is a collaborative project between Zapier and the Georgia Innocence Project (GIP), an independent non-profit dedicated to helping free individuals who have been convicted of crimes they did not commit in the state of Georgia.

The story behind "The 4%"

In America, it's estimated that 4% of people in prison are actually innocent—and an even smaller fraction are exonerated and walk free. Kerry Robinson is one of those people. "The 4%" delves into the system that failed him, the science that freed him, and the people who fought for his justice. It offers an insightful look into the challenges of exonerating the innocent and the determination of those who tirelessly fight for justice.

"The 4%" podcast aims to bring awareness to the plight of the wrongfully convicted and the work of organizations like GIP. By sharing the story of Kerry Robinson, we hope to shed light on the important work that our customers, like GIP, are doing.

Throughout the series, you'll hear from the people who played an essential role in Kerry's exoneration, including GIP's team, experts who examined the evidence, Kerry's lawyers, the DA, and Kerry himself. This podcast will not only captivate listeners with Kerry's story but also showcase how technology and collaboration can make a difference in the quest for justice.

Georgia Innocence Project's work with Zapier

GIP's work involves re-examining long-closed investigations and legal proceedings, which is incredibly labor-intensive. A single exoneration can take many years and countless hours of tedious work. To reduce administrative overhead and enable staff to focus on correcting some of the criminal legal system's most egregious errors, GIP uses Zapier to build systems and processes.

Zapier has played a significant role in allowing GIP to stay focused on their core mission: helping people wrongfully convicted of crimes. Automation has allowed GIP to maintain efficient systems, clear processes, and consistent information, which are critical to their work. From managing open records requests to applicant intake and intern management, Zapier has become an integral part of GIP's success story.

As Matt Holbrook, former Operations Director at GIP, put it: "As a nonprofit, we always have to try and do more with less, which means that we are constantly running up against constraints of time and resources." With Zapier's help, GIP can now navigate these constraints and ensure that innocent Georgians in prison receive the assistance they need.
