True Crime podcasts, teaching and the changing notions of identity: Kate McCaffrey

Ep. 63
Kate McCaffrey is an acclaimed author of young adult fiction and now she’s written her first adult novel. DOUBLE LIVES is a story within a story following Amy, Journalist trying to establish herself in Western Australia again after time away working in Melbourne. Amy has the idea to do a podcast and the season one case she focuses on is the murder of young transgender woman Casey Williams. Upon arrest, Casey’s boyfriend Jonah Scott confessed to her murder immediately and pleaded guilty. But Amy thinks there’s more behind this shocking crime and delves into the cult run by Jonah’s family and its potential involvement in Casey’s murder. The story explores identity, truth and acceptance in a compelling way. It’s my first time reading Kate’s work and I’ll be reading her young adult books, which have been on secondary school reading lists for a number of years.Disclosure: These show notes contain Booktopia affiliate links, meaning I get a little commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links, at no cost to you AND authors get a book sale (including me!). Find out more about Kate : https://katemccaffrey.org/Purchase DOUBLE LIVES  Produced and hosted by Emily Webb author of:Suburban True Crime: Cases you’ll never forget and some you’ve never heard of Suburban True Crime (audiobook)Angels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who Kill  Follow Emily on Twitter https://twitter.com/emilybwebbInstagram https://instagram.com/emilywebbcrimeTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilywebbcrimeFacebook facebook.com/emily.webb.podcaster.authorWebsite: https://www.emilywebbcrime.com/Listen to Killer Content on:Apple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/killer-content-with-emily-webb/id1539843342Google Podcasts https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9yc3MuYWNhc3QuY29tL2NyaW1lLWZpY3Rpb24tZnJpZGF5 Listen on Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/1gxxA7IcoTIcarh6sPgbEI

Taking on hyper-masculinity through dark crime fiction: John Byron

Ep. 58
The book we are going to talk about in this episode is one of my stand-out reads this year. Debut author John Byron’s dark, thrilling crime fiction THE TRIBUTE sees a tough, blokey Sydney Detective Dave Murphy chasing a serial killer obsessed with a 16th century anatomy text called The Fabrica. And his art historian sister Jo joins the hunt as well. The Tribute is a tantalising blend of medical-forensic and police procedural that has an important issue underpinning the narrative - what is to be a man in modern Australian society? I love crime fiction that is dark and character-driven and The Tribute is exactly this - it’s jaw-droppingly good! Your host is Emily Webb author of:·    Suburban True Crime: Cases you’ll never forget and some you’ve never heard of ·    Angels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who Kill Disclosure: These show notes contain Booktopia affiliate links, meaning I get tiny commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links, at no cost to you AND authors get a book sale (including me!).Follow Emily on Twitter https://twitter.com/emilybwebbInstagram https://instagram.com/emilywebbcrimeTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilywebbcrimeFacebook facebook.com/emily.webb.podcaster.authorWebsite: https://www.emilywebbcrime.com/Listen to Killer Content on Apple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/killer-content-with-emily-webb/id1539843342Google Podcasts https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9yc3MuYWNhc3QuY29tL2NyaW1lLWZpY3Rpb24tZnJpZGF5 Listen on Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/1gxxA7IcoTIcarh6sPgbEIKiller Content is a Smartfella production.*Affi
