Crime Writers On...

Manhunt: Unabomber, A Profiler Debate, & Homecoming Season 2 Review

Aug. 4, 2017

The Crime Writers tackle a pair of hot media properties this week with a look at the Discovery Channel's latest foray into crime with Manhunt: The Unabomber. This leads to a heated debate about how FBI profilers are portrayed in crime drama...and Rebecca joins #TeamToby for the first time!

Then, a review of the second season of Homecoming, the dramatized podcast with a stellar cast from Gimlet Media. Is the show in a second season slump? Will Rebecca ever stop calling David Schwimmer "Ross from Friends?" We'll answer those questions and a whole lot more.

Finally, our Crime of the Week gives the panel a chance to relish Toby's response.
