Culpable Investigative, Tenderfoot

Hosted By: Dennis Cooper
Produced By: Resonate Recordings and Tenderfoot TV

Culpable is an investigative true crime series from Resonate Recordings and Tenderfoot TV, the creators of Up and Vanished and Atlanta Monster.

Culpable is a word that simply means, deserving blame, but it tends to take on even deeper meaning in the world of true crime. In an unsolved, case, culpability is typically focused on the culprit(s). But in some cases, the source of culpability may be something much deeper: like wrongful convictions, negligent investigations, or even corruption. Culpable may be a broad term, but it’s an idea that is relevant to each and every case, making it the focal point of the stories we share.
