On today’s podcast we have the first part of a two-part interview with Crime Story contributors and producers and writers of the podcast series The Truth about True Crime, Amanda Knox and Christopher Robinson.

I met Amanda and Chris through Brian McGinn, one of the producer-directors of the Amanda Knox documentary that premiered on Netflix. I was very much interested in Amanda‘s perspective on the criminal justice system as an exoneree, a journalist and a public speaker.

In part one of the interview, Amanda and Chris talk about the early influences on their perceptions of storytelling and on their respective world views. We discuss Amanda‘s experience of the creation of the Netflix documentary, how she and Chris met during the final stages of the making of that film, her experience of watching that film and of how people responded to her after viewing the film.
