Love Podcast, Hate Ads

This is such a good show! Too bad there are so many ad breaks, especially given that most of the podcast episodes don’t top 30-ish minutes to begin with.

Aphrodite Jones

Love the podcast, but having Aphrodite Jones on was a huge mistake. She made a few really gross comments that I just can’t get past. Her talking about how she didn’t care that the other author was working with Shanda’s family because “So? I’m writing about the girls.” She implied that Shanda was the lesser element of the case and her murderers were more important. The victim should always be central to the case. It’s about THEM, after all, or that’s the way it should be. Also her comment about “Don’t tell a man you’ve been hit, because then they will hit you” was extremely sexist and disgusting. Sexism works both ways, and it’s just as wrong to generalize men the way women are generalized

Great Podcast

First started listen to Radha and Yvette on their Root of Evil podcast. They’re amazing host and I love the coverage they give to stories that don’t get nearly enough attention.
