We will be honest, we had two very successful mystery writers booked to be on this morning’s show. But, after what happened in Baton Rouge yesterday after what happened over the past 10 days, we became uncomfortable with the idea of talking about police and crime as entertainment. We will have both authors on in the days to come – but this morning – we wanted to talk with Dr. Frankie Bailey instead.
She is a professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University at Albany. She studies crime history, and crime and mass media/popular culture. She is also the author several mysteries including two police procedural novels featuring Albany police detective Hannah Stuart.
