Aron Bender talks with fellow Cal State Northridge graduate, Melissa McCarty, co-host of the "Killer Genes" podcast. She spent several years in local TV news in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Grand Junction and Amarillo, but since breaking free she’s written her memoir, "The Making of a Crime Reporter," as well as the 8-part Audible series I recently talked with Kerri Kasem about, "Bitter Blood: Kasem vs. Kasem." Melissa also spent several years working on "Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen," and Larry King's Ora TV.
