I grew up in the same generation as the Murderino crowd. I was a huge consumer of Homicide Hunter and Forensic Files; many HBO documentaries on autopsies and true crime. When I was a teenager in the 90s, I too researched and watched a lot of stuff on serial killers, seemingly senseless crimes, etc. These often reinforced the importance of listening to my gut, especially when a situation made me uncomfortable.

Most nights I would put on something from Investigation Discovery and dose off to whatever true crime show was on. Oddly, it was relaxing for me. These days, my significant other can’t take the gore (as I like those crime anthologies or books written by retired homicide detectives where they go into detail about how they went about solving it), so I put on NPR podcasts or fake stuff like No Sleep (horror stories).
