Farewell, but feel free to keep listening!

Dear listeners,

After 67 episodes of Crime & Science Radio, Doug Lyle and I are saying farewell to this podcast, with many thanks to our guests and deepest gratitude to our Suspense Magazine podcast producer, John Raab.

We’ve talked to internationally and nationally recognized experts in many forensic science specialities, to the leaders of some of the best labs in the U.S., to members of law enforcement, FBI specialists, educators, journalists, attorneys who have practiced in many areas of criminal justice, a judge who is also a top researcher on forensic science in the courts, an expert Sherlockian, and numerous authors who have either worked in these fields or researched them thoroughly.  We’ve spoken to veterans for whom we feel gratitude and admiration. We’ve talked to those who risked their lives as private investigators and undercover detectives. We’ve talked to those who are working on the cutting edge, and those who have explored the history of forensic science. We’ve heard from those who pursue the guilty and justice for victims, as well as those who seek justice for the wrongly accused.

It’s been one hell of a ride.  We’ve had a lot of fun and feel honored to have met such a great set of guests.

We hope you’ll keep listening — we are keeping our sites and links up.

We didn’t make this decision lightly, and we don’t think that we have said all there is to say about crime and science. But as writers with deadlines, and as people who are also devoted to our families, communities, and organizations that are doing good, we wanted more time for these other pursuits. What seems like an hour’s work to a listener always involves many more in scheduling, booking, preparation, research, and more.

We’ve learned a lot along the way, and hope you have, too. We hope you’ll continue to stay informed about our criminal justice system, forensic science, and other areas we’ve explored here.

Thank you so much for listening!

Jan Burke
