What are we even talking about when we talk about true crime?
That’s the big question DIE-ALOGUE host, Rebekah Sebastian, is getting to the heart of when she interviews her guests — a diverse cross section of true crime and criminal justice players. From lawyers and creators, to authors and survivors, DIE-ALOGUE examines the most compelling aspects of true crime, challenges the genre's tropes, and explores the ethics of true crime content for both creators and consumers. Listen in to hear the leading voices in crime, culture and justice.

Let's kick off Season 3 with a really interesting conversation around MLM's, shall we?
Are MLM's a cult? Why do so many end in disaster?
The directors of LuluRich, Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason, delve into their why's and how they got LulaRow founders, Mark and Deanne, to talk, and also a burgeoning new category of content: TRUE COMEDY.
Our conversation transcends leggings and gets into a more meta exploration of the genre, our broken country, and how it makes us long for something we can't attain so we end up hawking products to friends in the hopes of a life changing opportunity.
Jenner and Julia founded Cinemart in 2011( partnered with Jay Z, nbd) and are responsible for an incredible slate of projects including: FYRE FRAUD, TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, The Pharmacist, and Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.

Elle Johnson knows how to tell a cop story. Her father was a New York City parole officer. Her uncle was an NYPD homicide detective. She’s written and produced for several shows including Homicide Life on the Street, Law & Order, and Bosch. She also wrote a memoir about her cousin Karen’s 1981 murder.
Her book, The Officer’s Daughter: A Memoir of Family and Forgiveness, explores that tragedy, her complicated relationship with her father, and the surrounding criminal justice themes like sentencing and parole. She faces a big question about whether or not to speak out for or against the release of her cousin’s murderer and her memoir will compel you to consider what you would do in the same situation.
Elle and I discuss her book’s themes, her entry into show business, and what restorative justice could look like. I hope you will check out this book and also follow her on social media as she has a new show and book coming out soon!
Here's her book:

If you are FOR changing what police work in the Unites States looks like, and want to bring equality to our system, but ALSO want to remain supportive of law enforcement, Matthew Horace has ideas. He lays out the ways and reasons all of this is not only possible, but necessary. I can't think of a better interview to close out Season 1 - yes, DIE-ALOGUE is taking a brief hiatus to prepare for a new Season in September, more on that below! First, you need to listen to my conversation with Matthew in which we discuss police reform, BLM, defunding the police, Ferguson, the murders of George Floyd and Rashard Brooks, and more. Then you must go get his book so you can learn even more about law enforcement in our country, from a man who lived it for 30 years, AND his dozens of interview subjects - men and women in blue - all over the country, who also serve and protect.
His book is wonderful and combines his own story about becoming a cop, the racism he experienced in and outside of the department, and interviews with other officers and agencies who share their stories as well. Understanding policing history is critical as we look to make changes for the future. You can find his book here. Learn more about Matthew here. And follow him on social media: FB Instagram Twitter
Note: Putting a link to The Breathe Bill which was just proposed at the time of our interview and is further along now. You can learn about it here.
I ( Rebekah) want to say THANK YOU FOR LISTENING. I've put out new episodes 56 weeks in a row and it has been incredible. I am so grateful to you the listeners, and my incredible guests. But Mama needs a break to prepare for Season 2. I will be re-releasing some oldie but goodie episodes that you may have missed while I am gone! If you have ideas for guests for Season 2, message me on FB, IG, or Twitter, or email me:
rebekah@yellowtapetruecrime.com See you in Sept! This isn't goodbye, it's ta ta for now - follow me on social to keep in touch!

Detective?CHECK. Bronze Star Army Vet? CHECK. Former Secret Service Agent? CHECK. Hit Podcast host? CHECK. Is there anything today's guest can't do?!? Say hello to Jim Rathman, the other half of Real Life Real Crime; we had his other half, Woody Overton on episode 33.
Jim walks me through his career and how he's happily landed where he is, investigating cold cases that desperately need attention. Jim and Woody balance their vast talents and skillsets to bring answers and closure ( if that's even possible) to families of victims. Jim shares a lot about the Courtney Coco case which the two of them were instrumental in helping crack, though charges still have not been brought. Listen to find out why.
Jim has stayed busy during Quarantine focusing on a missing persons case that you just might have heard of... does the name Don Lewis mean anything to you? #tigerking
Kirk write a three part series on his experience aptly titled "Trapped with Ms. Arias." You can find those as well as books on weight loss and wellness here.
Keep up with Jim on social and be sure to check out Real Life Real Crime where Jim and Woody share real cases they worked from their careers and they tackle important issues like trauma and suicide within law enforcement.
Thank you, Jim for killing the small talk!

David Dominé has written about food, history and Southern culture with an emphasis on the city he now calls home, Louisville, Kentucky. His latest book, A Dark Room in Glitter Ball City is his first true crime book and he came by it honestly.
Interested in buying an old Victorian home in the historic district of Louisville, David soon learns it was the home where two men stood accused of a vicious murder. And the victim? Jamie Carol was found in the basement buried beneath the dirt floor.
Get comfy and get ready for a twisty tale about Southern Victorian architecture, drugs and drag queens, a brutal murder and ... real estate.
If you’d like to WIN a copy of the book, snap a picture of this episode playing on your phone or computer or car and share it with me on Instagram or Twitter - don’t forget to tag me!
