TCP Ep. 17 Craig McGuire and Carmine Imbriale

This interview was a riot from start to finish. Today I got to sit down with two guests, Author Craig McGuire and Carmine Imbriale.

Craig is a bestselling true crime writer. His titles include “Brooklyn’s Most Wanted – The Top 100 Criminals, Crooks & Creeps from the County of the Kings,” “Beyond the Ides – Why March is the Unluckiest Month of All,” and his most recent title, “Carmine and the 13th Avenue Boys – Surviving Brooklyn’s Colombo Mob”

Carmine Imbriale was a mob associate in New York City for most of his adult life. His story of how he navigated and survived the Colombo mafia wars is the focus of Carmine and the 13th Avenue Boys.

This convo ranged from mafia drug wars to kidnapping dogs, to turning state’s evidence. These two were so much fun to talk to, and they put out a great book. Read Carmine and the 13th Avenue Boys.

TCP Ep. 13. Serial Killers: 101 Questions True Crime Fans Ask with Dr. Joni Johnston

This was an amazing interview. I had information overload going into this not only because of the information contained in Dr. Johnston’s book but because of the interesting aspects of her career and research. I could have talked to Dr. Johnston for hours.

Dr. Joni Johnston is a clinical/forensic psychologist, private investigator, and true crime writer who became interested in the dark side of human nature after reading Helter Skelter, Vincent Bugliosi’s book about the Manson family when she was fourteen. She has spent her professional career in prisons, forensic hospitals, and courts and has worked with both offenders and victims. She also has a passion for communicating forensic psychology to the public and writes a blog for Psychology Today (The Human Equation), has a YouTube channel (Unmasking a Murderer), and a podcast (Behind the Mask). She also has a SubStack Newsletter, The Mind Detective. Her website is www.drjonijohnston.com.

Her book, Serial Killers, 101 Questions True Crime Fans Ask is a fascinating read where she takes fan questions and uses them as a platform to do a deep dive into a bunch of different issues surrounding the phenomenon of the serial killer and why we are so fascinated by true crime.
