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.

    Introducing California City, presented by LAist Studios

    California City is out now! California City is a new investigative podcast series from LAist Studios.

    Deep in the Mojave Desert, there is a little town with a big name and a bizarre history: California City. For decades, real estate developers have sold a dream here: if you buy land now, you’ll be rich one day. Thousands of people bought this dream. Many were young couples and hard-working immigrants looking to build a better future. But much of the land they bought is nearly worthless. In this new podcast from LAist Studios, host Emily Guerin tells a story of money, power and deception.

This was an A podcast

I think that in this day and are, there are a lot of amateurs (that’st he nicest word I can use) who are either having someone tell a fake story or they’r embellishing on the facts to try and spin a better story. It makes me kind of sick. So when I see someone just giving the story as it \happened, I hsve a lot of respect for people like that. This is one of those podcasts. This was a seriously graphic story and I don’t even think that they intended for it to happen like that, it’s just hte subject matter. Cosby is a really really twisted human being and I sm not saying it’s a surprise, buy it’s involving rape and I never sought out the details of individual crimes. I just cannot believe this guy had 2 prosecutors either on his pay roll, or doing a favor by not prosecuting him. Both of those prosecutors belong in a prison somewhere If my daughter, sister, niece, or anybody that I cared about fell victim to this creep because the prosecutor would’t take this case on, I would be out of my mind with rage. It’s really too bad that there wasn’t a way to make this into a podcast with more content, but it’s under the LA times so you know that they are not going to go very far with it since it’s not COVID.

WELL DONE 10/10

Difficult story well told

Just finished an overnight binge after discovering this podcast. I am a 53 year old Survivor. When I listen to some shows I know their hearts are in the right place but the storytelling seems pandering all the same. But this one was different. Real emotions were allowed to come from victims naturally, the reporter who broke the case stayed true to the facts but never gave up, and I finally understood the timeline of the case. Just listen. Powerful and healing.
