Online – True Crime: Why We Are So Obsessed

Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 7:00 pm–8:30 pm

True Crime: Why We Are So Obsessed


The True Crime genre simultaneously scares and intrigues us. Join the Minnesota Humanities Center as we delve into our obsession with the darker side of human nature by exploring our fascination with stories of real life crime with panelists Amanda Jacobson of the Wine and Crime podcast, social psychologist Dr. Amanda Vicary, forensic psychologist and author Frank Weber, and moderator Timya Owen, former president of Twin Cities Chapter of Sisters in Crime.

After the panel discussion, enjoy a night cap with special guests and panelists discussing how judges, juries, and forensic science come together, or not, to ensure justice is served.
