Hey ya’ll….here I am again, just….totally gushing to you about the amazing time I had at CrimeCon2021 in Austin, TX! As I said in last week’s episode, I was able to do some amazing interviews and meetups while I was there. Last week, I shared the interview I did with Karlee Bodine, whose Mother, Karen Bodine, was brutally murdered in 2007 in what is a STILL UNSOLVED cold case….so be sure to listen to that episode. And now, in this episode I’m shifting gears a little bit and sharing my interview with Spencer Coursen, which I also did live at CrimeCon.
This interview deviates from my normal discussion of murder mysteries and cold cases, and we were able to share a bit more lighthearted conversation, which was really nice.
So, Spencer recently released his new book, called The Safety Trap. In this book, Spencer discusses the fact that, although the times we live in are truly safer than ever, that presumed safety, can also give us a FALSE sense of security. Topics of the book range from home security options, to keeping your kids safe, and he urges ALL of us not to depend on OTHERS for own safety, BUT, he shows the everyday person ways to shoulder that responsibility ourselves.
Spencer’s CrimeCon sessions were informative, and entertaining… he’s actually a pretty funny guy – and he kept the CrimeCon audinces totally engaged with his real-world, relevant advice and anecdotes. If you missed him at CrimeCon 2021 in Austin, you’ll DEFINITELY need to catch him at CrimeCon 2022, in Vegas.
So, without further adieu, here’s my interview…with Spencer Coursen, security expert and author of The Safety Trap, in stores now.
