Dr. Scott Bonn “Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer”

Listen Live on Thursday, March 29 from 7-9pm ET


Dr. Scott Bonn, Doc BonnDrew University Professor, Dr. Scott Bonn  is not your average academic.   Bonn teaches courses in criminology, sociology of deviance, media and crime, and criminal justice. Doc Bonn is currently researching and writing a popular book on the public’s fascination with serial killers that is tentatively titled, “Monster Dearest: Our Fascination with Serial Killers and Why We Need Them.” This book examines the social processes through which serial killers often become morbid pop culture celebrities.

Serial killers hold the fascination of the public, whether in true crime news accounts of individuals such as Ted Bundy or fictional depictions such as the television shows Dexter and Criminal Minds or popular movies such as the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” or “Silence of the Lambs.” Serial killers seem so purely predatory and unremorseful that our society cannot help but display a macabre interest in them.

Given the public’s preoccupation with the dark side of humanity, it seems quite natural that many people want to know why serial killers commit horrible acts against others, and it seems equally natural that the grizzly exploits of serial killers often become mass media spectacles.

The live interview with Doc Bonn will be from 7-8 pm EST and you can listen to the pod cast at www.sexandpolitics.podbean.com
