I studied Criminology and would suggest you guys look into prisons in Norway. They have completed changed their prison models from purely punishment to rehabilitation. Their recidivism dates dropped from 70% to 30% but just treating the inmates with basic respect. I'm also familiar with Cesare Lombardo; criminal atavism is very interesting on a primitive level but even offspring of known criminals do not become criminals themselves. Lombardo having worked in forensic psychiatry make his studies quite bias.

Happy Birthday Crime Junkie!!! 🎉🎈🎁 As for most, 2020 has been a year. Returning to work after maternity leave in the middle of a pandemic was....less than ideal? Hah😅 Basically, I was a wreck. Every. Single. Day. Crying, angry, depressed, anxious, you name it, I was enduring it🤷🏼‍♀️ Then a friend of mine shared your podcast and I listened. First the episode she recommended(about missing indigenous girls), then another, & another. Your podcast literally became my crack! lol But in a really good way. I wasn't hyperfocused on all the negative, worrying about everything I knew I couldn't control-I was becoming a die hard Crime Junkie. Something I did not know I needed until I was introduced to your podcast. Ashley & Britt, you two are seriously amazing. I appreciate you two more than you know for helping me to find(oddly enough-I know) a sense of peace when our worlds have been nothing but. Many Thanks Ladies, Krista
