Episode 18: Crime Time

Sep 15, 2016, 10:57 AM

Happy Thursday Duhmericana fans! Thanks so much for tuning in. This week on the podcast, we ask ourselves: why are we so fascinated by the grisly details of crime? This is evidenced by the popularity of long-standing television shows like NCIS, Criminal Minds, and perhaps the most well-known of them all, Law and Order. Even new shows like Making A Murderer and podcasts like Serial and Sword and Scale have picked up quite a following.  Is it our need to feel safer with the knowledge that this didn't happen to us? Is it a voyeuristic quality? Why do we all stop and stare at the train wreck, or get "rubbernecked" when passing a bad accident on the highway? Chime in: do you have a favorite crime drama? Are you turned off by them completely? Let us know here or on any of our social media sites!
