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.
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.
