Building community with true crime in the pandemic

This weekend will see hundreds of folks from all over meet up digitally for a full day to talk true crime, cold cases, unsolved mysteries, and everything in between. Crime Con will take on a digital footprint by hosting House Arrest. Usually, this convention is in person and over multiple days, in cities like Indianapolis, Nashville—Orlando was on tap to host 2020. But, like most things affected by COVID-19, Crime Con will be online.

A packed-full lineup for the event includes speakers, demonstrations and the ever popular podcaster row—thought what that will look like virtually is part of the draw at this point. Our team is excited to see some of our fave's make the list like Karyn Greer of CSI Atlanta, and Paul Holes and Billy Jensen of... nearly everything, but their podcast Murder Squad is in our heavy rotation at the moment.

What could pair better with a Saturday full of an interactive true crime conference than a weighted blanket and ID streaming in the background? Uncovered's Citizen Detective guide, of course.
