Over the last couple of years, True Crime has gone from (mostly) sensationalist fare, to prestige entertainment. Shows and podcasts like Serial, My Favorite Murder, Making a Murderer, You Must Remember This and Dirty John are transcending niche audiences and applying world class storytelling (and often humor) to these compelling tales of murder, conspiracy and mayhem. In a polarized world where there is no clear cut mass audiences anymore, these stories provide us with heroes and anti-heroes we can all agree on. BYT took the conversation about them from the proverbial water-cooler and into a real life environment. 2018 Inaugural edition featuring John Douglas (Mindhunter), Golden State Killer investigator Paul Holes, Wine & Crime, Joe Kenda, Last Podcast on the Left, Buzzfeed Unsolved and more attracted 7,000+ attendees, and 2019 will see BYT take this project to NYC in March, and back to DC in November.
