About Point Blank Podcast

Point Blank is a podcast about crime fiction -- be it hardboiled, noir, or detective.

Mixing serious analysis and humor, the co-hosts (Justin and Kurt) discuss a classic or contemporary work of crime fiction each episode.

In addition to major works, they offer short reviews (5-Round Bursts), and examine noir-ish topics such as alcoholism in detective fiction, the femme fatale, and race and labor in crime fiction in a feature called Subject Unknown.

Stroll with Kurt and Justin down the rain drenched alleys and mean streets as they explore the fascinating world of crime fiction.
