Casey Anthony's Parents Speak, The Staircase: an American Murder Mystery, The Killing of Jon Benet: The Final Suspects Podcast. These are but a few of the projects my guest produced. Today I speak with a man who has VAST experience telling true crime stories. Not just any true crime stories- the ones we all know and...love? Hate to love? Love to hate? It depends on who you are, I suppose. Matt Sprouse is a TV Producer who led Jupiter Entertainment's programming for years, but is out on his own now. He was always looking for ways to tell these headline stories in the most human, respectful, yet compelling ways.

I know you will love today's conversation because we get some inside scoop on these major cases, but also because we transcend that to tackle the larger issues that many of us wrestle with as we consume true crime. Also, Matt surprised me with a personal connection to a high profile case that shaped how he approached true crime. ( hint: it caused him to AVOID it for a long time) Listen to find out which story.

Also he just sold a project that is in in development ( though paused because of COVID19), and he couldn't publicly share which case it is, but he told me off the record, and OMG, I cannot wait for it. I will share as soon as he gives me the green light.

For Matt's full list of projects, you can check out his work on IMDB, and this is his production company, York + Wilder's site.

I am thankful to Matt for killing the small talk!
