A history podcast from Gavin Whitehead

The Art of Crime is a history podcast about the unlikely collisions between true crime and the arts. We take painstaking research and craft it into compelling stories that teach you about society and culture. Each new season covers a different theme.

Season 2 is titled “Assassins.” It profiles artists who have committed, attempted, or at least been implicated in an assassination. Subjects include John Wilkes Booth, Adolf Hitler, Nero, Andy Warhol, and Leon Trotsky. Also check out Season 1, “The Unusual Suspects: Artists Accused of Being Jack the Ripper.”

Tracking and attribution: Megaphone and Chartable or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of The Art of Crime later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to The Art of Crime also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Megaphone may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The Art of Crime may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.
