True Crime

While the true crime podcast genre is booming, we are brooding.

In a world saturated with violence, what is it about the true crime genre that has gripped so many of us, pulled is in, and kept us listening in droves? What does it say about the lived realities of gendered violence when we consider that true crime’s primary audience (85%) is women? Are we compelled to heal the traumas in our communities, or are we focused only on consumption of others’ wounds?

Aimee Knight peels back the layers of these questions with journalist and host of Curtain Amy McQuire, and true crime researcher Dr Rachel Franks. Join us in this urgent conversation for writers, readers, podcasters, filmmakers, journalists and consumers of true crime stories.

Produced by Beth Gibson
