True crime justice–delivered.
This week Kim & Kirsta geek out about the capture of the alleged Golden State Killer. Many references are made to ‘I’ll Be Gone In The Dark’, the amazing book by the late Michelle McNamara about GSK. If you read only one true crime book, this is the one we recommend. It’s chilling and moving with writing uncomparable to other true crime stories.
The focus is on the victims of the true crimes that are covered. They are why this amazing feat of justice is celebrated. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/nation-now/at-least-a-dozen-men-and-women-died-because-of-the-golden-state-killer-heres-who-they-were/465-7730c67a-91e5-4ee8-9fa0-8109ff02aabf?utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_content=5ae6c0493ed3f000075ee909&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook
Kim and Kirsta share their discomfort regarding privacy implications with DNA testing. They speculate that this will be heard by the Supreme Court eventually but until then, here’s a Buzzfeed article on the topic: https://www.buzzfeed.com/peteraldhous/family-tree-dna-subpoena-golden-state-killer?utm_term=.kjljVEzjA7#.ru1yNvmyMK
The Mariska Hargitay film, ‘I Am Evidence’, is gushed over. It’s so good you guys, and speaks volumes to the http://www.endthebacklog.org/ campaign. The documentary is on HBO. If you don’t have HBO, pay for it to watch this documentary and binge ‘Big Little Lies’ as long as your month is paid up. https://www.iamevidencethemovie.com/
Of course, K&K had to discuss the convicted rapist who formerly was America’s Dad, thanks to his TV persona and advertising of Pudding Pops (which definitely should still be available in stores). https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2018/04/27/bill-cosby-full-list-accusers/555144002/
Another campaign that Kim and Kirsta support wholeheartedly is https://nonotoriety.com/. Check out this work and consider it when you’re discussing true crime obsessively with your friends. If your friends and family look at you like you’re crazy while discussing true crime, you can always contact Kim and Kirsta and obsess with them.

Major props to the girl power of Mandy Horvath, a double amputee that climbed the Manitou Incline. Yeah, don’t put us down for cardio. http://kdvr.com/2018/04/25/colorado-springs-woman-with-no-legs-climbs-manitou-incline/
K&K discuss one Tarana Burke quote, but her quotes are all amazing: https://quotecatalog.com/communicator/tarana-burke/
