    Serial Killers with Dr. Joni Johnston

    Serial Killers with Dr. Joni Johnston

    Why is society so fascinated by serial killers? Why does one even commit such a terrible crime and then do it again...and again? In today’s episode, we have Dr. Joni Johnston on to share what her job is like as a forensic psychologist working with serial killers and criminals who have committed horrid crimes. She discusses how she makes “recommendations” that have a huge impact on someone’s life (do we allow this person to be released or stay locked up for life?). Liat shares excitement in anything true crime-related, so much so that she can barely form a sentence #BitchesFangirlToo. Listening to this episode, you will quickly realize that regardless of the field of work you are in, we are all speaking the same language. Crime junkies and friends, tune in or miss the f#%k out.

    True life: I am a BCBA and have no support with Dr. Jim Moore

    In today’s episode we bring back one of our favorite guests, Dr. Jim Moore! We had so much fun with him on episode 54 and wanted to check in and see what he has been up to these past two crazy years. We had planned to talk about one topic, but we felt pulled to talk about the lack of support BCBA’s feel once they pass this test. Jim gets it and so do the Bitches so tune in for a hot conversation that hopefully will inspire, motivate and make you feel like you are not alone! Love you. Mean it!

Serial Killers with Dr Joni

Love this weeks eps. Very interesting and informative!! Keep them coming!

Taylor Whitcomb ,

Love you, mean it

While studying for my BCBA sometimes you need to listen to real like stuff to make things relatable. So I love listening to this podcast while driving , or at work!!! Love all the relatable terms and interventions all in conversation with what’s going on right now. Keep going ladies.

Bri.93 ,

Keep being you but always look for improvement

These girls definitely know their stuff. I have a 4 star review because I think their show can be better if they didn’t go off on a tangents and just stayed on topic more as well as allowed their guests to speak more. I am not the type to just throw out 5 star reviews because that shows perfection and I feel that perfection does not exist.

The girls have big personalities, which for me I have to be mentally prepared for to listen to an episode. I recognize this is a me problem and not a them thing. Never change who you are for someone else.

I like how they talk about regular life topics and relate it to ABA and mainly keep to laymen terms for listeners who may not be in the field. I am a new listener in the field and listening to the series in order. I am currently listening to episode 11 as I am typing this. Episode 6 is my all time favorite so far!
