Dr. Scott and Dr. Shiloh analyze The Staircase documentary from a psychological perspective, covering the odd characters in the series and the influence is had on the audience & jury, as well as the struggles of families of people going through the criminal justice system. They also offer their theories of what happened.
This episode we are bringing you something a little more light than dark (some dark, psychobabble rants included) with an episode dedicated to the crime shows we loved this last year and the nominees. Dr. Shiloh dives into the true crime story of The Assassination of Gianni Versace by exploring the background of killer Andrew Cunanan, his psychopathic tendencies, and the timeline of his spree killings, as well as the excellent, star-studded show itself. Dr. Scott then takes us into the fictional world of turn-of-the-century New York to explore the book and series, The Alienist.
