    S2 Ep.10: Is “Gay Panic” Really a Defense? (with criminal justice scholar Dr. Warren Carsten Andresen)

    S2 Ep.10: Is “Gay Panic” Really a Defense? (with criminal justice scholar Dr. Warren Carsten Andresen)

    Two cases attempt to employ the contentious “gay panic” defense to wildly different results. After two hookups go sideways, a gay man and transgender woman are murdered. But what is the difference between these two killings and the trials that came after? Why are we still using the "gay panic” defense in the court of law? And is using this defense its own type of hate crime if it further persecutes members of the LGBTQ community? 
    Host Daryn Carp is joined by scholar Dr. Warren Carsten Andresen to discuss the gay and trans panic defense and how it is still used today.

    After a body is found in the woods, an autopsy cannot reveal a cause of death and a murderous mystery is born.  How could Jeannette DePalm have died with no clear or obvious injuries?  Was this a satanic or occult sacrifice?  And although this is considered a “suspicious” active case to this day, what would it take for this case to be considered a homicide?
    Host Daryn Carp is joined by Michelle Belanger to discuss the scary circumstances at the scene and why very few people involved with this case wants to speak on the record.

Great true crime podcast!

Only 2 episodes into the podcast series, but so far I love it!! I am no podcast guru, but the ease of the hosts leading to these stories is brilliant and some of the stories told on here being chills down your spine… really makes you think twice when taking the trash out late at night or being overly kind to a stranger! Great production!!
