Law&Crime launches new podcast breaking down the Depp v. Heard trial

Leading live trial and true crime network Law&Crime has launched a new podcast hosted by attorney Jesse Weber, and long-time court reporter Angenette Levy, which provides daily updates on key testimony from the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamation trial.

Sidebar breaks down each day’s proceedings into a 15-minute episode that’s easy for experts and beginners to understand.

To date, the network has seen more than 330 million viewers and the trial is expected to last another few weeks.

Live coverage of the trial began with opening statements on 12 April and gained significant traction over the course of Depp’s testimony that detailed his tumultuous relationship with ex-wife Amber Heard and decision to sue her for defamation. The suit stems from an opinion piece that Heard penned in The Washington Post about domestic violence.

“With each high-profile trial, our audience is not only returning but growing exponentially,” said Rachel Stockman, president of Law&Crime. “People are turning to Law&Crime across our platforms for the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage on this case.”

Besides the United States, the network is seeing increased viewership from the United Kingdom and Canada.

The growing viewership comes as the Law&Crime Network continues to expand its podcasting division with the launch of Sidebar, which is available everywhere you get your podcasts, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, YouTube and Spotify.
