Former Colorado Springs Police Lieutenant Joe Kenda–the Homicide Hunter–is releasing a new book titled “Killer Triggers“.
Admittedly, I am a huge fan of Joe Kenda. Not only due to his shows “Homicide Hunter” and “American Detective”–which are fantastic–but because he is a good cop that chose to stand up and do the right thing and protect people like me and you.
Joe took time out of his busy schedule to chat with me about the new book, his shows on the Discovery Channel, his life as a detective in Colorado Springs, PTSD, and so much more. We even touched on George Floyd, COVID-19, and the recent capitol riots.
Joe was an absolute delight to talk to. We were scheduled to chat for about fifteen minutes… forty-five minutes later we were still talking. You can listen to the interview by clicking play below.
