Why are we all obsessed with true crime and reality TV‪?‬ Life Uncut

    • Society & Culture

Some of us are more willing to admit it than others, but isn’t it just so therapeutic to chuck on some trash reality TV at the end of a busy, hectic day? Whether you like keeping up with the Kardashians, or following the drama filled shit show that is married at first sight, I think we can all admit that there’s something about escaping into a different world to our own that we find intriguing. But what exactly is it that makes us want to be a fly on the wall in other people’s lives? 
Why are we so obsessed with serial killer docu-dramas and podcasts? 
Are we sick to be utterly engaged in a “who did it and how?” episode about some pretty messed up things?
Psychologist and criminology expert Sandy Rea joined Laura and Britt on the podcast to tell us exactly what the heck is going on in our brains and why we are so into reality TV and true crime!
She shares her wealth of knowledge from working as a psychologist in maximum security prisons in Australia, to her time spent working as a psychologist on reality TV platforms!
Speaking of true crime, the girls have some recommendations for you this week and they’re all about “Dr Death.” Laura recommended the new series on Stan titled Dr Death, and Britt recommends the podcast!

If you love the episode and see the irony in us sharing a love of reality TV when that’s potentially where you met us (haha) then please share it with a friend! Flick us a rating on apple pods if you feel inclined and share the love, because we love lovvvvve!
