Psychology of Serial Killers

Dr. Rachel Toles takes us into the minds of serial killers…

Dr. Rachel Toles, a renowned Clinical Psychologist and criminal expert, explores the terrifying minds of the world's most infamous serial killers in her show. Through her personal research, she uncovers surprising motivations behind these heinous crimes and delves into why we, as human beings, are so captivated by such horrors.

Dr. Toles' fascination with true crime began at a young age when she witnessed the violent death of a teenage girl. This experience ignited her curiosity about death and murder, leading her to write illustrated stories on the subject as a child. She aims to bring deeper insight to the topic of true crime through her social media channels. By connecting with online communities, she works to debunk myths and answer questions surrounding serial killers and criminal psychology. Her goal is to raise public awareness and promote safety in the face of society's most disturbing individuals.

With extensive experience in both clinical and forensic evaluation settings, Dr. Toles has dedicated herself to understanding the motivations, behaviors, and patterns of dangerous criminals, particularly serial killers. Beyond her clinical practice, Dr. Toles has served as an expert witness in high-profile court cases, utilizing her criminal forensic expertise and psychological evaluation skills to help bring justice and understanding to these legal proceedings.

Additionally, she has worked intimately with numerous female murderers and inmates who suffer from acute mental illnesses at Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Maloney, a forensic psychologist in the Menendez Brothers case. Dr. Toles is in high demand as a lecturer and speaker, sharing her knowledge on profiling and understanding the minds of serial offenders.

Currently, Dr. Toles is working on a thought-provoking book that challenges our perception of "evil" and encourages us to reconsider our understanding of this concept.

Meet our co-host: Lizzie Bourne

Through performing, writing and podcast hosting, Lizzie scrutinizes what it means to connect with other humans. She has taken to the stage nationally and internationally as an actor and aerial performer; her scripts have been shared with audiences on three continents; and her podcasts Eggshells (on how to disagree well) and #happydaysproject (asking what makes us happy) were listened to across the globe. A dedicated traveler, over the last four years Lizzie has lived in Chicago, Bristol (UK) and Barcelona - but not in the South East of the US, yet! She hails from London, and so is probably not related to Lizzie Borden. Probably.
