College of Criminology and Criminal Justice Assistant Professor Emma Fridel was a recent guest on the A+E Networks podcast, Crime of a Lifetime.

The weekly podcast by Kerry Ipema and Quinlan Pozner examines and discusses real-crime stories taken directly from the headlines.

The hosts shed their usual format for the episode Understanding Female Killers and featured a 40-minute interview with Fridel that covered multiple cases previously featured on the podcast. 

Crime of a Lifetime featured Fridel for her continued research in lethal violence, homicide, and serial mass murder.

“Criminologist and author of "Extreme Killing," Emma Fridel has spent much of her career trying to understand why women kill and how their methods differ from men. Kerry and Quin pick her brain about the cases we have covered so far."
