DIE-ALOGUE

DIE-ALOGUE

What are we even talking about when we talk about true crime? That’s the big question DIE-ALOGUE host, Rebekah Sebastian, is getting to the heart of when she interviews her guests — a diverse cross section of true crime and criminal justice players. From lawyers and creators, to authors and survivors, DIE-ALOGUE examines the most compelling aspects of true crime, challenges the genre's tropes, and explores the ethics of true crime content for both creators and consumers. Listen in to hear the leading voices in crime, culture and justice. KILL THE SMALL TALK. Start a DIE-ALOGUE. Visit https://www.rebekahsebastian.com/diealogue-episodes \
