Podcasters are an interesting bunch, especially those in the true crime world. I think we’re often seen as cynical, sarcastic, potentially intrusive, thick-skinned, addicted to tragedy porn… but the truth is, we’re a creative, vulnerable, diverse, mostly well-intentioned group of people who feel just as driven to create as a painter or a sculptor.
It’s easy for me to say, but it can be even easier to believe if you hear it from more than one person, so here you go: Justin from the Obscura true crime podcast agreed to chat with me about the process behind pressing that little “publish” button. I hope you find it as interesting and enlightening and hopeful as I did.
And never fear: we also discuss serial killers and mass shooters and generally dark subjects, as well, so you get both the darkness… and the hope.
