The Radio Show


Crime Prevention 101 is an award-winning, hour-long, magazine-format variety show, with an optimistic perspective on a very sober subject.  We give life-saving information on subjects like preventing sexual assault; discuss legal trends like factors that sway juries; and lighten the mood with offbeat topics like prison coaching for white collar criminals.

Medical identity theft…what hairdressers across the country are doing to address domestic violence… martial artist rabbis who teach synagogues how to protect themselves from attacks…cane fu self defense for disabled veterans…how millions of amateur internet sleuths are actually solving crimes…and why choking someone isn’t always a felony — these are just a few of the topics we’ve covered.
