Hoytus Interruptus – Being Amanda Knox

February 8th, 2022 by Jeff Hoyt

Jeff Hoyt chats with Amanda Knox

The Wikipedia page for Amanda Knox has 5,000 words devoted to the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher, her subsequent wrongful incarceration and conviction, followed by her acquittal, release, re-conviction, and ultimate exoneration.

As for Amanda’s life since returning home from Italy a decade ago to live the rest of her life? Well, that gets just 216 words.

Therein lies the yawning gap in her story that I try to fill during this extended conversation with Amanda, who still to this day deals with death threats and hateful attacks on social media. But she has also moved on to plant roots, build a family and fight the good fight on behalf of the wrongfully convicted.

And special thanks to Rob & Naomi of Moody Little Sister and to Pete Droge for the music heard in this episode!
