Today we are chatting with the former producer and executive of Court T.V., The Nancy Grace Show, and Author Wendy Whitman.  

Wendy has a unique background through her decades-long work as an executive and producer for Court TV and HLN, covering almost every major high-profile murder case in America. Through her knowledge of the most detailed aspects of the crimes, Ms. Whitman has become an expert on the subject of murder in America. Before attending Boston University School of Law, Whitman worked for comedians Lily Tomlin and George Carlin. After graduating from law school, Wendy embarked on what turned out to be a twenty-year career in television covering crime.

Ms. Whitman is now the author of the Deer Killer series.
In today’s episode we discuss:

·      The O.J. Simpson and Robert Blake trials. 

·      Working with Lily Tomlin and George Carlin.

·      Working on Court T.V. and Nancy Grace for almost two decades. 

·      Coping with trials that included graphic details about horrific crimes on a regular basis.

·      How she went from working in true crime to writing fiction.

·      Her “Deer Killer Series” and people's fascination with serial killers.
