What drives people to kill? Criminal Psychologist Dr. Michelle Ward goes behind prison walls to talk face to face with six violent murderers in Investigation Discovery's first ever podcast series, THE MIND OF A MURDERER. Relying on her expertise as a trial consultant, Dr. Ward drills down into each killer’s psyche to reveal the genetic, emotional and psychological components of a homicidal brain. Interwoven with these criminals are her own personal and professional insights and comments from family and friends of both the killer and victim. With first-hand accounts and personal stories you haven’t heard, Dr. Ward and Investigation Discovery successfully and intensely bring you into THE MIND OF A MURDERER.

Customer Reviews

Boring interviews from a sarcastic gawker.

So disappointed. Is this woman really a psychologist or even a professional? Her tone (and sometimes actual words) sound like "ewww, can you believe he did that?" Sarcasm doesn't work with these stories. She is not revealing anything interesting or psychologically based about these killers. She speaks from the perspective of an ignorant gawker. The problem is that she treats these men as sub human. She has decided from the beginning (and tells us) that these men are nothing more than bad seeds. To her they are worthless. Therefore she has no where to go in the interview. We have nothing to discover. I know I'm sounding harsh, but I can't believe this woman sits in the seat of an actual criminal psychologist. The interviews end up being boring, nothing new, because we are already capable of gawking and throwing out sarcastic judgmental remarks ourselves. We don't need a flippant interviewer to tell us what we already know. Maybe these are more for the "Entertainment Tonight" crowd.
Also, these interviews have not OVERTLY racist tones, but there's an uncomfortable feeling that these men are probably black and this white woman demeans and almost pokes fun at their situation. Maybe I'm going too far with this comment but this podcast left me with a very bad taste in mouth. So sad in many ways.


I really love this. It reminds me of the Serial podcast. Amazing production values.


The production value of this show is shockingly bad, with noticeable edits and changes in sound quality. The storytelling sounds simply like a television show being played on the radio.
