Berit Brogaard, a legendary philosopher and writer in her own right decided to sit down for an interview with Telegraph Local’s new true crime podcast, “Catching Hell”. What an interview she gave. We received a plethora of information on the mind of serial killers. Berit has penned almost five books now and shows no sign of slowing down. Berit Oskar Brogaard is a Danish-American philosopher specializing in the areas of cognitive neuroscience, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language.

FBI statistics say there are more than 30 serial killers at large today in society.  According to Dr. Mike Aamodt, serial killers proliferated in the U.S. from the 1970s through the 1990s: there were 104 active serial killers operating in the U.S. in 1974, 147 in 1984, and 151 in 1994.

Berit Brogaard was able to shine plenty of light on how these types of people operate via the mind, what they think, why they start and what it takes to catch them. She dives deep into the topic, giving exact information and helping us as a society have the ability to understand, to some degree who these people are.

Berit also spoke about her new book due out in October called “Hatred”. The book is being published by Oxford and will be available on Kindle, etc. as well. So look for it at the local book store. Until then, please enjoy the very in depth interview by clicking play below!
