Todd McComas left a 21-year career as a detective with the Indiana State Police to pursue a career in standup comedy, radio and podcasting. Returning to his roots, Todd draws from his own experience to offer a unique perspective into unsolved crimes, notable crimes that have been solved and interviews with active and retired law enforcement officers that have incredible stories to share.
FBI Legend Jerri Williams
Jerri Williams is a true FBI legend with a storied career where she worked some of the most complex fraud conspiracies imaginable. She now spends her time entertaining and educating us as a podcaster, blogger, TV & film consultant and a best-selling author.
FBI Profiler Julia Cowley
The role of the criminal profiler fascinates me more than any other in law enforcement and Julia Cowley was certainly one of the best to ever hold the position. She profiled the Golden State Killer case and obviously many more high-profile cases so she's here to talk about those, to explain exactly what a profiler does and to share her new podcast The Consult which is stacked with an entire crew retired profilers.
Paul Holes is a retired investigator from the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office who was the Lead Cold Case investigator for the Golden State Killer Case and is largely responsible for the identification and arrest of Joseph DeAngelo.
Meet The Prosecutors
Brett & Alice from the hit podcast The Prosecutors join Todd to discuss some cases and talk about this new true crime journey they're taking together.
Inside The Breonna Taylor Shooting
Retired Sgt. John Mattingly of the Louisville Metro Police Department was the officer shot during the execution of the search warrant on Breonna Taylor's apartment. He is here to share his story.

Crime Scene Confidential
I had a great conversation with veteran crime scene investigator and host of Crime Scene Confidential on DiscoveryID, Alina Burroughs. She spoke about two high profile cases she worked, the Caylee Anthony murder and the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

Burger chef murders
A very interesting podcast on the unsolved Burger Chef abductions & murders with a unique perspective, including one of the Law Enforcement officers assigned the case.
The stand up after the Natural Born Killers was pretty funny. Not what I expected but entertaining. No other podcast does this & you may get crucified for doing it, but it made me laugh.
Definitely one of THE BEST true crime pods hosted by a former police officer around at the moment. Anyone who enjoys former Australian cop Gary Jubilee’s podcast will enjoy this one as well. Maybeeee even a little bit more.
EDIT: took 2 stars off because of the interview episode with Jay post the murder of George Floyd. I was really disappointed. I feel like these two retired undercover cops are missing the picture and out of touch with the community that they need respect from to be effective. It’s that way in all emergency services. Jay talks about how you gotta be willing to change your mind, yet clearly he hasn’t yet arrived at this point himself. It illustrates the very problems we are facing far more than it seeks to be a part of the solution. Some of it was interesting and some points were interesting, particularly when discussing the issues of adrenaline and training, and I respected those points, but the level of old white boys club made me cringe. Check your privilege y’all.
Jays emphasis on all men being created equal completely ignores the fact of slavery and that only white men were created equal back then. We remain a long way from catching up with his ideal of equality. His points on team sports which is a place that he believes creates colour blindness serves to silence and mute the oppression faces by BIPOC.
This episode kind of broke my heart. So disappointed. It’s very clear where our problems are. They are in the mindsets that these two retires cops maintain. No wonder why we are where we are.
David Camm Case
Very interesting and informative case but I felt you waffled on a bit too much.
I’ll try the next one.
