Let's Talk True Crime: Part One | True Crime With Caledonian Kitty


It's been a long time since I've done a Q&A post and I had so many question requests last time that I didn't get the chance to answer everybody so I thought it would be a good idea to put those remaining questions into a little series. Sometimes it's good to have a sit down and a right good chat about all things true crime. 

In this little series of posts we are going to have a right good natter about the darker things in life, I'll be answering your questions and hopefully you will find my answers interesting and maybe you'll find out a little bit more about me along the way, so let's get into it...

1) Do you worry that someone else is going to steal your content or is using your true crime content right now?

This actually happened not that long ago, I wrote all about it in this post. Someone on YouTube had stolen my content from my Husband From Hell: Mitchell Quy blog post and I sat in shock as this female narrator with a mature voice basically read out everything I had written word for word. There was drama about it because I confronted the coward but she hid behind the screen so I was never able to identify who she really was. My followers weren't happy about the situation either. She blocked all of us and no doubt the video is still on her channel. Good luck to her, I say....see how far she goes when she's too lazy and uneducated enough to do her own work. I see podcasts using my blog as a ref all the time, they do credit me but at the same time I don't think it's right to go onto someone else's blog, read all the details that you couldn't be bothered to research yourself and then sticking it on your podcast or channel. It tells me that these types of people are not really passionate about what they do, either they are in it for the money, attention or just jumping on the bandwagon. I have no doubt that my posts are probably somewhere right now being passed off as someone else's work, I shall have to put a spell on these people (Evil laughter).

2) Do you have a favourite true crime podcast?

I always say Trace Evidence because I'll tell you the truth, I don't have the time to really listen to podcasts and there's so many of them now. Steve stands out from a lot of the others because he works his ass off putting each episode together and he's had many experiences of having his content stolen. If a podcast is really good, like REALLY good, I will listen but honestly, I enjoy reading books from real criminologists like Prof David Wilson and Christopher Berry Dee. Some podcasts go on way too long with Bob and Margaret banging on about what they think, I'd rather hear from the experts that actually worked on the cases. As I mentioned earlier, a lot of podcasts have used my work for ref so you can usually tell when they are just reading someone else's work, have no real idea about the case and are just throwing out opinions at the end of it. Not all podcasts are the same so don't shoot the boots off of me, I'm just saying that you have to really go through and see which one really interests you and if it is proper quality as well if you are thinking about setting up a paid subscription. 

3) Have you ever been to a true crime convention?

I have never been to one but I would love to go. 

4) Have you ever been inside a prison?

Yes I have, only the once and I saw Amy Winehouse's ex husband Blake in this visiting room whilst I was there which was quite an odd experience having always seen him with Amy on TV and in the newspapers. I will talk about that in a future post if anyone is interested? 

5) What do you think of these vigilante channels on You Tube that feature undercover groups exposing pedophiles?

This is going to sound irresponsible to some people but I think what these people do is fantastic! It's a scary world that we live in and children are getting snatched off the street right, left and center by these types of monsters. I have written various horrendous stories on here and I've not even touched the sides. These monsters should be shamed and exposed for what they are, at the end of the day, children's safety is a priority and agree with it or not, these groups have stepped in and saved quite a few children from falling victims to these disgusting perverts. 

6) Is there a law that you would like to see in place? 

There's so many! I would like to see harsh sentencing for animal abusers and Internet trolls. I want to see Fox hunting banned. I would also like to see people jailed straight away if they have exposed themselves to others. It annoys me to this day that a lot of these types of perverts get away with a caution. As we've seen time and time again, this is a major red flag that these monsters are going to go on and do worse, look at the Sarah Everard case for example. I would also like more protection for victims of crime, stalking and Domestic Abuse. I also don't agree with murderers being released early from prison under new identities and lifestyles all paid for by the tax payer. 

So, that's my first little batch of Q&As, I will be posting the second part next week. Thank you for joining me and I hope to see you on here next week. You can find me on all of my social media platforms by clicking this link

  1. Hi Jo,
    Fantastic ! I’ve been learning a lot and I absolutely love when you do this.
    I would love to see you writing about your experience when you visited the room of Amy Whinehouse’s ex husband.

    I completely agree with you about the vigilante channel. These monsters has to be reported.

    I couldn’t agree more with you about some law against animal abusers but also against these fucking annoying troll. They are so toxic ! I would like to see more justice against all the victims of domestic abusers. Fox Hunting is disgusting and it make me sick to my stomach.

    Thank you so much Jo for your amazing and awesome work Xx
    I can't wait to read part two !!
