Amanda Knox: Imprisoned for Murder Exploited for Profit

It never occurred to Amanda Knox that she would be looked at as a suspect for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher. The police told her she was their star witness. But once the story made international headlines, the investigation quickly turned into a calculated and violent interrogation that left Amanda without a voice and with a wrongful conviction that would change the course of her life forever. Who do our stories belong to? And how can we avoid objectifying the real people at the center of them? 

In this episode:

  • How should we think about the stories we are told in the media?
  • Who is being helped and who is being harmed by the systems we rely upon for information, and what can we do about it? 
  • Amanda’s experience when first moving to Italy.
  • The first week of November when Amanda’s life would change forever.
  • The news Amanda received that she was the key witness to this case.
  • Amanda and her boyfriend’s fight for freedom and justice.
  • Three core principles to live by when storytelling.
