Can’t stop won’t stop

I am not normally a huge true crime fan, but this podcast takes the best parts of mystery- the drama, the flair, and the suspense- and combines it with film noir and iconic LA history. It is the perfect companion on my daily commute. I can’t wait for the rest of the episodes to be released.

Must Listen

Incredibly well done. Looking forward to the rest of the series. This podcast is obviously greatly researched and thought out. I am already hooked! The film noir feel is a unique perspective to a true crime podcast. Would recommend to anyone.
