I just finished listening to the podcast Happy Face (2018).

This is a 12 episode story. It is interviews with a daughter of a former serial killer (and the daughter’s mom is also prevalent in the podcast). The killer was known as the Happy Face Killer.

The first 2-4 episodes are great and extremely entertaining. You are introduced to this monster’s history and how it effected those closest to him. It might be more engaging for me because this is the first in depth interview of a serial killer’s child that I’ve ever listened to.

It’s obviously very sad, but what’s good about it is that you get to witness how strong this awful man’s child was/became through it all. After the first third it is still interesting at times but not near as dense and entertaining. True Crime lovers, at the very least check out the beginning.

Though it’s from 2018, this is one of the best new podcasts I’ve heard in 2019. For the first third of the podcast I give it 9.45 stars out of 10. For the last two thirds I give it 6.7 stars out of 10. Overall I give it 7.6 stars out of 10.

Love it, but the music in between is trash.

Kids love it!

Kids love the stories and they are long enough for the wife and I to get stoned and make love. Thank you more than you know!
