34: Winston Shaw on the missed call that led to law


Winston Shaw was a freelance sound recordist filming on location in the Catskills.  Spending days without reception, when he finally got service his cell exploded with texts about a job offer from HBO but because he had been unreachable, the position was already filled.  Missing a rare creative opportunity, he decided to leave his artistic career in NYC for law school.  Now a public defender in Sante Fe, we talk about his passion for criminal law and the realities of working in a broken justice system.
