We are a community of professionals in the field of death investigation. Whether you’re a coroner, a member of local police or county law enforcement, an EMS professional, or medical examiner – or frankly, anyone in between, Coroner Talk™ is the right community for you. We provide training and resources to coroners and death investigators by and from professionals around the world, a peer to peer training environment. I recognized that the training available for coroners and small department investigators was limited by resources such as time away from department and expense. So, I developed Coroner Talk™.

He holds credentials as an instructor for the Missouri Sheriff’s Training Academy (MSA), Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI).

Phenomenal!

This podcast is exactly what I needed. The knowledge and stories shared are top notch. There needs to be more resources like these, so we can all help each other succeed. I have learned an obscene amount from this podcast and I am only on the ones from 2015. I will surely be listening to this multiple times and sharing with friends. Thank you Darren!

Fascinating

I’m a true crime and enthusiast and I stumbled upon your podcast. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! Thank you, I’ve learned so much and I have only listened to one episode. And I appreciate your humor, I’ve laughed a couple of times.

Absolutely amazing...

This podcast has taught me so much about the medicolegal death investigator role, I am HOOKED. I’m starting a program to get my MDI certificate in Fall 2019 and this podcast has been an amazing prep. The episodes are extremely informative and easy to listen to for the layman person. I’m in social work and I have to drive around a lot so I love to put these on when I’m driving or doing paperwork. I had been trying to find a book that could give me some wisdom on the field from the perspective of a death investigator but I could not find ANYTHING that was reverent or I liked. This podcast met all my requirements. A big thank you to Darren Dake for being so dedicated to the field.
