Our Editor's Take

A Hateful Homicide is a true crime podcast about murders rooted in prejudice. Host Mallery Jenna Robinson details crimes committed against gender nonconforming individuals. Victim's gender identities on the program range from transgender to non-binary. With this show, Robinson hopes to raise the voice of this at-risk community.

Podcast host Robinson has a personal connection to the cases she covers. She is a transgender woman and an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. Her work with Long Beach's LGBTQ Center has connected many people to vital care. She is also an associate program director at Equality California.

Before turning advocacy into a career, Robinson taught middle school science and history. Her trans empathy and teaching experiences make her an excellent resource and host. She brings a compassionate voice to an underreported issue. Every episode of A Hateful Homicide reveals and examines the real dangers that LGBTQIA+ people face.

No matter the demographic, the murderer is often someone the victim knows. But trans people are also the victims of random attacks. Robinson narrates the events surrounding each murder. She analyzes the psychology at play to understand how these crimes happen. Listeners learn about each victim's gender identity journey as well. Some victims get justice, but many cases remain unresolved.

The media is part of the problem of hate crimes committed against the genderqueer community. These murders tend to receive little media attention. Robinson draws much-needed awareness to these forgotten victims. The podcast advocates for LGBTQIA+ individuals and keeps the victim's stories alive.

Fans of the show may enjoy Robinson's respectful approach to these stories. Her soft, calm narration of these horrific crimes makes each episode captivating. A Hateful Homicide is a unique addition to the true crime category. Some listeners may want to learn more about the lived experiences of trans people. This podcast does an excellent job of combining true crime and LGBTQIA+ issues.
