CRIME AND REASON: the backstory in high-profile crimes that television leaves out. Created and hosted by JOHN KELLY and LEO BATTENHAUSEN, who between them have over fifty years of experience with criminal and deviant behavior and the motivation behind these behaviors.

Television news and coverage of major criminal activities today fall far short of the true backstory that causes such heinous behaviors, and news anchors and “expert” guests leave much information out of the reporting that Kelly and Battenhausen believe is absolutely necessary to truly understand why people murder, rape, exploit innocent victims and feel compelled to partake in such atrocities and then feel no remorse or responsibility for them.

“What we do on Crime and Reason is provide you the listener with a brand-new venue of TRUE CRIME NEWS and fill-in the unspoken truths television leaves out,” explains Battenhausen. With their vast professional and first-hand experience in dealing with serial killers, psychotherapy and addictions, Kelly and Battenhausen’s new and perhaps ONLY show available on radio today promises to provide and inform listeners with vital pieces of the who, what, how, where and why of high-profile crimes that intrigue, anger and fascinate Americans.
