I'll stop whispering now. There is a new podcast, hosted by comedians Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff, and it's all about true crime. It is unabashedly for the folks who would rather stay home Saturday nights and watch 48 Hours.
True crime. It's a cultural fascination, an obsession. Like a trainwreck, it's difficult to look away. There's something about delving into the deepest darkest recesses of human nature that we find compelling.
I don't know if we'll ever pinpoint all the reasons why true crime has become such a sensation, but as we inevitably continue to indulge ourselves, we must make sure we consider that real people experienced a significant loss in every single one of these stories.
