Cold Case Murder Mysteries is a unique True Crime podcast geared toward the intellectual, a provocative offering that dives head-first into the psychology of violent crimes and their perpetrators to gain a profound understanding of the society in which we live. Host Ryan Kraus offers a fascinating exploration of our most primitive human desires, and projects them upon a behavioral canvas to create psycho-biographies of criminals and events that have escaped detection through traditional means. Utilizing methods ranging from linguistics to evolutionary biology, Ryan leaves no stone unturned in his plight to crack the coldest cases. His insights are regularly described by listeners as "genius", "brilliant", and "wizardry".
