About The pod

When Kim and Kara met via TikTok advocacy, the idea to form a podcast quickly followed. They knew that there were people around the world who would not get the experiences they had of feeling seen and heard sitting down with other survivors. From this, the idea of a podcast formed.


What if there were a space where survivors could come and share their stories with other survivors and with a purpose? What would it be like to discuss the topics and feelings that are often only discussed over coffee and behind closed doors? What if we could go beyond the true crime genre that's so popular and bring you the stories of survival from the survivors themselves? And what if we could laugh a little in the process?

Kim and Kara put their heads and resources together and started reaching out to their other friends and survivors to see if they would be interested in participating. As the list of people on board for this project grew, they KNEW it had to happen. 

Survivor's Guide to True Crime was born from a desire to encourage fellow crime survivors to reclaim and narrate their own experiences while educating and empowering listeners to live inspired. 



Kim and Kara knew pretty early on in the journey of creating this podcast that a Patreon was a must have. It would be a space to hold all of the content and dark humor jokes for the insiders and ultimate fans. The name was a no-brainer, it would be the original name we loved for the podcast but decided was a little too dark for the whole world. 
Thus, the SGTC Captive Audience Patreon was born. 
If you just can't get enough dark humor, want the full video versions of interviews, behind-the-scenes content, exclusive merch, live q&a's, and more, join the Patreon! 



The topics we cover on our podcast can often be triggering. Because of this, we want to provide resources (in addition to the ones we mention each week) for anyone who may need them.
