Description

Criminologists, the media and the general public have grown increasingly interested in the topic of women and crime. As criminologists, we study females who have been victims of crime, those who have committed crimes, and those who are involved in the criminal justice system through their work.

In this podcast, we tell the stories of these women, but we also look at the causes of female crime, victimization and punishment. We will cover cases in which women have been wrongfully convicted and exonerated, and we will use a criminologist lens to look at how women are treated in the criminal justice system. Some of these women you may have heard of but we promise to also bring you cases of women whose names will be new to you. Regardless of the type of case, we will cover a new story involving women and crime every episode.

Just started listening, and so far I like it, but... For the love of grammar, there is no "X" in the word "escape." 🤦🏼‍♂️🤣

The ads are REALLY abrupt. You should try to do a little music or something to indicate you're switching to an advertisement.

I love this show, as well as direct appeal, however, I find Meghan so fair and balanced, while Amy, whose EXPERTISE is wrongful convictions, is far too biased and critical of the persons featured. Not to mention her overcorrection of Meghan, I don't know how she doesn't get irritated, I get irritated at her constant "clarification" of what Meghan reports.
