    Episode 14 - True Crime

    Episode 14 - True Crime

    While the consumption of the stories of real crimes as a form of entertainment is not new, the internet age and the proliferation of podcasts have made these stories especially accessible. Just like any media explosion, there are pros and cons and plenty of nuances to the genre of true crime and the world's obsession with it, which gravitates from voyeuristic at worst to purposeful at best. In this episode, Alissa and Brittney discuss what makes true crime entertaining, whether its consumption is harmful, and the positive impact that sharing these stories can have. While there is nothing explicit or gruesome discussed here, be aware that there are references to violence and abuse.
