About this Audible Original

From podcasts and documentaries to online forums, true crime is booming. But as one Audible editor and self-professed crime obsessive observes, the genre is being pulled in new and different directions along with a changing social landscape. She wanted to know: Can we ethically engage in true crime as real concerns surface around the crimes, victims, and systemic issues that directly impact the humans we are hearing about? Where are the most sensitive and original voices in true crime turning their attention? And how can we use our primal fascination with the dark side of human nature as a force for good?

Listen in on this exclusive conversation with a host of experts from the true crime landscape, featuring original interviews with the following guests:

Attica Locke, author, Heaven, My Home

Billy Jensen, author, Chase Darkness with Me

Emily Martinez, executive producer, Finding Tess

Jim Clemente, creator, Call Me God

Marcus Parks, creator, Last Podcast on the Left

Michele Josue, director, Happy Jail

Maureen O’Connell, narrator, Call Me God

Rachel McCarthy James, author, The Man from the Train

Rachel Monroe, author, Savage Appetites

Sarah Weinman, author, The Real Lolita

Scott Brick, narrator, In Cold Blood

Vanessa Harris, senior director, Audible Content Partnerships

Please note: Murder, We Spoke contains some adult language and mature themes. Discretion is advised.

Love the deep dive with true crime heavy hitters!

I never thought I would call myself a true crime fan, but with the age of prestige true crime upon us (whatever that means), I've surprised myself by getting immersed in narratives like Mindhunters, Serial, The Staircase, OJ: Made in America, Twisted, A Serial Killer's Daughter, and more. I love how this piece looks at where true crime is right now as a movement and asks really interesting questions about where it should go next. I'm super intrigued by the part of the conversation that talks about the mental health toll on true crime investigators and journalists. And check out that star-studded cast! Attica Locke is my new fave <3 I also loved hearing Scott Brick talk about what it was like to narrate In Cold Blood. Thank you for the thought-provoking listen, complete with creepy Americana-esque sound design!

A whole new way of looking at true crime

This short, podcast-like listen opened my eyes to true crime’s problematic past and how the genre can move forward in a more empathetic way — one that looks at the victims’ stories and those of the wrongfully convicted. The many voices throughout will bring a new perspective to true crime fans everywhere.

Lose the music, get better audio from the authors

Lose the music, get better audio from the authors.
Depressingly bad production,
Free does not account for the waste of my time listening to this poorly produced audio.
Great Idea. -0- follow through.

Synthesis Success

I am proud Audible put this out.

Michelle McNamara & B. Jensen changed the game, and this addendum to their books is confirms an ethical mission that is otherwise not that "popular."
And yes, I agree, Finding Tess is shit... & misses the point.

Good listen!

Love it, no complaints! I’m a fanatic so I need more recommendations now that the combo of Greg Olson and Kevin Pierce has come to an end. I could listen to true crime for hours!!

Fascinating topic and guests

Loved this exploration of true crime as seen through the lens of writers and other experts in the field. The audio quality wasn’t always perfect, but I appreciated getting the different perspectives on how the genre is evolving to be more ethical and solution oriented.

Something Different...

A curious, empathetic, intelligent conversation from largely a female perspective took this genre into a new realm ..really exciting!!! I love the format of a recorded essay... This feels like just the beginning to a new approach to and fresh view of crime culture.

Preachy and judgmental

For a book discussing true crime, the “author” seems not to be much of a fan of the genre herself. Oh she gives the proper lip service to Capote, but then seems to spend an awful lot of time pushing the narrative that reading /listening to true crime “for the chills” is somehow a bad thing. Or that we’ve spent too much time on one kind of victim (white women) and that should be tossed aside in favour of greater diversity. And while I agree that there are undoubtedly a million stories to be told about victims from all sorts of backgrounds, I don’t feel the need to be lectured on how “the way it’s been done” is necessarily bad. There is a lack of respect for where we’ve come from in favour of pushing an agenda of change, and I just don’t think this was the appropriate venue for that. The repeated mention of “privilege” with regards to both perpetrators of crime and readers/listeners was little more than an intentional buzzword trigger meant to make the narrative appear appropriately “woke”.
