    Sponsored: Wondery Presents: The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley

    SPONSORED AD: On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando.



    Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date.

    This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta?

    From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong.  Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

Love it (with one note)

One of my favorite podcasts. But for the love of all that's holy, Dave, "based on," not "based off of."

Immortan G ,

The best!

Been a listener from waaaay back. One of the few podcast that I still listen too weekly all these years later. Great banter & insight into the current crop of movies & tv shows. Even if I’m not interested or haven’t seen the movie they are discussing, my actual favorite part of the show is the “What we’ve been watching” segment. I’ve gotten a lot of direction on which Tv shows & other movies to watch & avoid over the years. Plus it’s always great when they talk about a show you’ve already been enjoying & to hear there quick take on it.

For Josh's Eyes Only ,

Adore you all ! <3

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and have recently gotten back into it due to my long commutes for university. Thank you to you all for reigniting my love of podcasts and movies again! (My fave is watching the movie, listen to your episode on it, then rewatch it again lol)
