    Introducing Chasing Cosby by the L.A. Times

    For decades, Bill Cosby brought warmth and laughter across the country, cementing his image as “America’s Dad.” But behind that disguise was the real Bill Cosby – the monster who preyed on women by promising them mentorship, only to then drug and violate them. Hosted by Nicki Egan, the lead investigative journalist on this case, the series features jurors, lawyers, and over a dozen survivors telling their story together for the first time. “Chasing Cosby” is the definitive take on the rise and fall of America’s Dad.

Riveting

This story had me absolutely riveted from start to finish. I love the way you told this story and how thorough you were in your investigation. Its not often that you hear a story from every possible side. I literally want to pack my bags and move to Norway to help the two living there and doing such great work. Excellent journalism and extremely well presented. Thank you!

The last two episodes may trigger Survivors Of Child Sexual Abuse

The podcast was extremely interesting and I Love that the REALLY REALLY bad guys were caught in the end. I have to tell you though that as a Psychotherapist and specialize in working with survivors of sexual abuse, you may likely be triggered by the last two episodes. I really wish they would put a stronger warning on these episodes as some other podcasts do.
