Close Reads

Close Reads is a book-club podcast for the incurable reader. Hosted by David Kern and featuring Tim McIntosh and Heidi White, alongside a couple of other occasional guests, we read Great Books and talk about them. This is a show for amateurs in the best sense. We’re book lovers, book enthusiasts. This is not an experts show and it’s barely literary analysis in the way that literary analysis is commonly understood. Instead it’s a show about experiences with literary urge. Join us!


Close Reads is presented by Goldberry Studios.


A NOTE ABOUT OLDER EPISODES: Since most podcast apps don't go further back than 100 episodes, you'll need to click here to listen to anything further back than that. And our first 32 episodes can be found here, on the original CiRCE Institute feed.

Shattered Souls

What comes to mind when you hear the word “forensics”? For many, the word evokes images of sterile labs and white coats. The reality, however, is quite different. In Shattered Souls veteran forensic investigator Karen Smith opens her detailed and poignant journals from her 11 years as a forensic detective in Jacksonville, Florida. She speaks of trudging through muddy swamps, dangling over crime scenes from a firetruck ladder, and the tremendous emotional toll that the horror of these crimes wreaks on the investigators tasked with solving them.  Karen talks about the nightmares, the emotional and often physical pain, the scares, and the breath-holding, white-knuckle moments from the most haunting cases of her career. They’re victims you’ve probably never heard of, but they’re victims that she can never forget. Their stories - and the shattered souls of loved ones they left behind - are at the heart of every episode. Shattered Souls: A Forensic Detective’s Diary is presented by CrimeCon.
