Show Notes

"True Crime" is perhaps the most talked about genre in podcasting but it's also a type of podcast that Brittany just can't stomach. Tracy Clayton of Buzzfeed's Another Round joins the show to discuss her love of these shows. Plus, Brittany talks to the creators of the only true crime podcast she's been able to enjoy.And a warning: since this episode is about true crime, the content may be disturbing to some listeners. There will be descriptions of sexual assault and violent crime, so please proceed with caution.
