more about crime capsule

the smoking gun. the bloody knife. the chase, the catch, the courthouse doors. on the crime capsule podcast, nothing fascinates us more than the stories of true crime in american history: the deeds and misdeeds that have shocked our citizens and, in some cases, shaped our nation. traveling coast to coast, our mission is to dig up these stories from america’s past and to bring them to america’s present. to shine a light on the darkness that at times shadows our history. and hopefully, to let that light illuminate the concept of justice more brightly.

join writer and host benjamin morris for exclusive, in-depth interviews with authors from arcadia publishing, the largest publisher of local nonfiction in the country. from dna testing to the dixie mafia, our guests have intimate knowledge of the cases they’ve studied. they’re the historians who chronicled them. the reporters who broke them. and sometimes, the cops who cracked them.

each week, crime capsule brings you the authors who have journeyed deep inside the shadows of american history. and we’d love for you to join the conversation. learn more at www.frasernovels.com. crime capsule: history so interesting it’s criminal.
