True Crime Podcasts recommended by Barb:
Someone Knows Something - a CBC broadcast about a 5-year-old boy who disappeared in 1972 - still unsolved
Truth and Justice - a listener-driven podcast that originally focused on the Adnan Syed case from Serial, and now is focusing on other cases of the wrongly convicted
Crime Writers On...a podcast about a podcast and Serial, Journalism, True Crime, and Pop Culture
Real Crime Profile -im Clemente (former FBI profiler), Laura Richards (formerly of New Scotland Yards, Founder and Director of Paladin, National Stalking Advocacy Service) and Lisa Zambetti (Casting director for CBS' Criminal Minds) as they profile behavior from real criminal cases.
Tracie is very disappointed in the people running her alma mater, UC Davis
