Bill Kurtis on why we're fascinated with true crime
As a journalist and television news anchor, Bill Kurtis has covered a wide range of stories over his 40 year career — but the Peabody and Emmy Award-winner is best known for his genre-defining true crime programs on A&E, including American Justice and Cold Case Files.
Today Kurtis joins guest host Gill Deacon to discuss his four-decade career, our societal fascination with true-life crime stories, and how years of covering horrifying crimes has affected him personally.
(Plus, you may recognize Kurtis's voice from the trailer for Anchorman.)
