Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Jun 13, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 31! June 13th marks another anniversary for the landmark Miranda ruling that established rights that are read out when you’re arrested. However, there were rulings that influenced the Miranda decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. One such decision was Ziang Sung Wan vs The United States, a chilling case that included a triple murder and some police interrogation tactics that were questionable at best. It’s a fascinating case that was instrumental in better defining what a coerced confession looks like. We open this episode by talking about the history of Miranda vs Arizona, and we close it with highlighting The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. Check out The AALDEF. You can volunteer, donate, or just learn more! And if you want to read more about the Ziang Sung Wan case, then we recommend the book The Third Degree by Scott Seligman.
