Hollywood and Crime is a ground-breaking true crime series about the most infamous murders in Tinseltown history.
 In The Black Dahlia Serial Killers, host Tracy Pattin investigates the sensational unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short. Known as the Black Dahlia, Short was a star-struck young woman whose body was found completely severed at the waist in January 1947. Many remember her tragic story, yet few know that more than a dozen other women died in similar circumstances around that same time.
 In Young Charlie, internationally acclaimed actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) joins Tracy for the story behind the making of mass murderer, Charles Manson. Young Charlie takes us on a unique journey, investigating Manson’s unlikely path from his troubled childhood in rural West Virginia to the night in August 1969 when he sent his followers out to commit the most notorious crime in Hollywood history.
You can also find The Wonderland Murders here, Tracy and writer/director Larry Brand (Halloween Resurrection, The Drifter) journey back to 1981 – when four people were brutally murdered in their home in the Hollywood Hills. The Wonderland Murders is the tale of a violent home invasion robbery and the revenge rampage that followed. It involves a drug-fueled gang of criminals, a crazed crime kingpin -- and the world’s most famous porn star on a downward and deadly spiral.

So ... many ... ads

Good production values; I loathe reenactments in true-crime podcasts, but these are much less objectionable than the Parcast ones. I like the host; I appreciate the research ... but SO MANY ADS.

Re-enactments

The re-enactments are too much

Quite a few creative liberties

Excellent production value and great narrators. However, the pacing feels very “on the fly” and doesn’t really seem to form a consistent narrative. And maybe this is just the nature of this show, but after listening to the “Who Killed William Desmond Taylor?” series on Luminary, and having read pretty much every source on the subject myself, I don’t honestly know where they got a lot of the details they used, let alone entire chunks of information. I’m going to listen to more of this show but just know that if you’re looking for decent accuracy and consistent pacing, this probably isn’t the show for you. However if you like audio dramas, this is pretty high quality.
