For nearly half a century, Bill Cosby brought warmth and laughter into hearts across the country, cementing his image as “America’s Dad.” But he also led a dark, secret life preying on women. The comedian carefully coaxed each one into feeling safe and cared for, then left them to pick up the pieces of their lives. It all started with Andrea Constand. She carried the burden of being the only one of the 60-plus accusers whose case could be tried in a court of law. Now, she's telling her side of the story, along with firsthand accounts from more than a dozen survivors, jurors and prosecutors. From the Los Angeles Times, and hosted by investigative reporter Nicki Weisensee Egan, "Chasing Cosby" is the definitive take of the rise and fall of Bill Cosby.

Sadistic Hollywood at it again!

I had such a visceral reaction to this podcast. I chose to boycott Hollywood and it’s sadistic ways years ago, so listening to what Bill Cosby did to these women was truly sickening. I’m so glad justice wasn’t served, albeit not long or soon enough. He is where he belongs. Now to get the other lot of sicko’s where they belong!

Riveting

I could not put this down. I was so disturbed by the accounts from the victims, which were respectfully handled, and admiring of the strength of these women to come forward. Thank you for navigating us so well through a difficult but important story.
