I love everything about Nick Dunne!! The fact that I get to hear Alicia talk about it makes me feel like I’m just gossiping with a friend. I’m crazy about this podcast!
A beautiful love letter to Dominick Dunne
If you are a fan of Trashy Divorces (HIGH RECOMMENDATION) then you know how fond host Alicia is of Dominick. This is a wonderful linear story and biographical account of Mr. Dunne. Alicia narrates with Stacy as producer, it’s just as easy to listen to as TD with Alicias penchant for making even the most boring subject something interesting and enthralling (I HIGHLY recommend becoming a Patreon and checking out the Trashy Tudors series- Mr. Donovan my high school history teacher would be so proud of me- I kill at trivia night). As always Stacy and Alicia do not disappoint and this podcast should be listened to.
What can I say? As a Dunne fanatic I am loving this podcast. I had the honor of hearing some of these stories from the man himself. Truly outstanding work you have “done” here. I can’t wait for more!
