Culture Wars 4-22-10

Sex scandals and true crime!
 
Barna and Ernabel welcome guest Amanda Lamb, the journalist and true crime author whose new book, The Evil Next Door: The Untold Story of a Killer Undone by DNA was just released. Hear them discuss the process of investigating and writing true crime, and how the police cracked a case that shocked Raleigh, NC.

And sex scandals from the Vatican to college campuses. Where could the ongoing allegations of sex abuse lead the Catholic church?  Has a college journalist gone too far joking about date rape?  And has an Iranian cleric finally solved the mystery of predicting earthquakes?
