Behind the Crime Scene - A True Crime Podcast
Kevin Lamar James. You may have never heard of him, but back in 2005, he had a diabolical scheme to wage war against the United States - all from the comfort of his cell at Folsom Prison. James radicalized and recruited other inmates to participate in what the FBI called at the time - the most operationally advanced terrorism plot since 9/11. Join Gina L.
