About Us

The History of Murder Podcast is researched, written, and produced by me – Julia. I am a Canadian lawyer who holds both a civil law (BCL) and a common law degree (JD), as well as an undergraduate degree in history. I am fascinated by the development of the common law and enjoy exploring how an essentially conservative and historical legal system is always shifting and changing. I particularly love the 17th century and the early-modern period.


I am not a professional legal historian or podcaster, so I greatly value all feedback on the History of Murder Podcast! Please reach out by clicking here if you have any comments, corrections, or questions to share with me.
