Some people spent the pandemic of 2020 on house projects -- even I got a few of those done -- but my biggest accomplishment was creating a brand new podcast that I'm absolutely loving to research. Crimes of the Centuries is about cases that once upon a time dominated the headlines, but which aren't very well remembered today. The podcast debuted in October 2020 on The Obsessed Network, headed by two of the nicest guys in the biz: Patrick Hinds and Steve Tipton. The awesome Garrett Tiedemann engineers.
My aim isn't to just examine old cases for the hell of it, but rather to put those cases into historical context and to explain the mark they left behind. Some sparked new laws, some changed how autopsies are performed, and others were just so appalling that they changed public perception. The project marries two of my biggest interests: history and the impact crime has society. Please check it out wherever you get your podcasts.
Fun fact: A lot of the original music you hear in the podcast was written by my musician father, Bruce Hunt.
I'm an author, journalist, photographer and college instructor.
