Are you a fan of psychology, sociology, social psychology and common sense? Well then, come check out Criminal Musings. Criminal Musings is a true crime podcast hosted by JV Hampton-VanSant, a Queer Black true crime enthusiast with a degree in psychology and a passion for exploring the factors and circumstances that lead to various crimes being committed. We cover crimes involving queer people and people of color, which means you may be hearing about some new and fascinating cases you didn’t know about before.
