Mariquita and Natalia Talk True Crime


Mariquita and Natalia join forces once again to talk about True Crime: who consumes true crime, which group or groups of people are deemed worthy of coverage (and what does that say about how we value individual life), what is ethical consumption, and how can we do better?

Our October pick:

We Keep the Dead Close: A Murder at Harvard and a Half Century of Silence by Becky Cooper
