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.

At long last...the truth has come out.

I really needed to hear this. The Cosby Show from the ‘80s was fine & all, but I spent most of my life completely enamored with his stand-up comedy routines. I listened to them over & over, & had memorized a lot of them. Now, I can finally be at peace with shunning all of that, & putting it away forever. Because it’s crystal clear to me now that his entire career was just a facade, & that the REAL Cosby is a monster...a horrible human being, who deserves the fate he received.

I listened to the entire podcast over the course of a single afternoon, & it was a real eye-opener, in many ways. As a man, I have never had to face such things, & I feel like I’ve learned a lot this week. I truly hope Donald Trump is the NEXT “celebrity” to be torn down by the ME TOO movement.

Powerful

While these accounts are, at times, very difficult to hear it is so important to hear them. Thank you for giving these victims a platform to share their voices. Thank you to every woman who shared their story on the podcast as well as at the trial and anywhere else. To every woman who was or is a victim or rape or sexual assault but hasn’t shared their story, you are not alone. The podcast was great but like other reviewers said the adds were at times a bit misplaced, specifically the adds for alcohol. Thank you to all who shared.
