    Wondery presents The Dating Game Killer

    In 1978, Rodney Alcala won a date on the popular TV show, The Dating Game. What no one knew was that he was a prolific serial killer in the middle of a cross-country murder spree. In this six-part series, co-hosts Tracy Pattin (Hollywood & Crime) and Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) take listeners on an unbelievable journey into Alcala’s twisting secret life. He hid behind normal jobs as a typesetter at a prominent newspaper and a summer camp counselor. How did this predatory monster fool employers, prison psychiatrists, and parole boards — all while committing heinous crimes from coast to coast? And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of - The Dating Game Killer.

The Goldman’s are far from sympathetic

I’m sorry for the loss of Ron, but they are not sympathetic, likable people. After OJ was granted parole, they went after Sydney and Justin Simpson, who are probably the biggest victims in this entire tragedy, for money and spread lies about them using OJ’s money to make their real estate purchases. They also both said on national television that Trayvon Martin’s murder wasn’t by race and Kim even said she agreed with George Zimmerman’s acquittal. This podcast is slanted towards the prosecution and the mainstream media narrative of the trial. I wonder if the Goldman’s will ever address the unsolved murders of Ron’s work associates - Brett Cantor (Judge Ito ruled the defense team could review his case? and Michael Nigg (worked at the Mezzaluna restaurant? Or their connection to convicted drug dealer and mafia lawyer Marvin Glass?

The Worst Family This Could Have Ever Happened To

Fascinating to get perspectives of those involved 25 years later, but it’s just sad to hear how Kim and Fred Goldman haven’t healed at all and never will. Granted, the main point of this podcast is Kim telling us how she CAN’T and WON’T “get over it” which, of course, no one can relate to unless they’ve had a loved one get murdered — but still, it seems like the Goldmans were the worst ever family for this horrendous murder to happen to due to their overly emotional nature and their extreme close-knittedness. And I wonder if they’ve been advocates for other murder victims? Not that they’re OBLIGATED to be, but they do *somewhat* act like they’re they’re the only family this has ever happened to. I’m sure this sounds harsh, but this was my impression of them 25 years ago and after this podcast, I still have the same thoughts today. I guess there was just too much of a contrast between the way they acted compared to the aloof Brown family. But the Browns knew the day Nicole would die at Simpson’s hands would come, so they probably weren’t shocked; the Goldmans could have never seen this coming and probably had no idea Ron even knew Nicole.
