Combining two of my favourite podcast themes (that would be Old Hollywood and True Crime) Hollywood & Crime is a new podcast from Wondery that aims to investigate one of Hollywood's most notorious unsolved crimes, the murder of Elizabeth Short, more widely known as The Black Dahlia.
Now, you might think you know all about The Black Dahlia, but Hollywood & Crime promises to delve deeper into the mystery of one of the world's most famous unsolved murders. Two episodes in, I'm definitely intrigued and eager to learn more.
If you're looking for a podcast that explores the deep, dark underbelly of glamourous Old Hollywood, then this is it.
Possibly my favourite podcast of 2016, Accused details the unsolved murder of college-graduate Elizabeth Andes. This is one of the best unsolved crime podcasts I've listened to -- and is definitely one that will appeal to amateur sleuths and Serial fans alike.
The Heavyweight podcast from Gimlet Media focuses on the turning points in people's lives when everything went wrong - and tries to make it right. It's an intriguing show, sometimes quirky, sometimes emotional, always compelling.
If you liked Starlee Kine's excellent Mystery Show (sadly and bafflingly dropped by Gimlet) then I reckon you'll like this one too.
One of my all-time favourite podcasts, You Must Remember This sees host Karina Longworth spill a whole lot of secrets as she dishes the dirt on the downright scandalous lives of Hollywood's Golden Age stars. If you love Old Hollywood, then you need to listen to this podcast in which the ever-knowledgeable Longworth covers topics ranging from The Hollywood blacklist to the Manson Family murders. A new series drops January 31st. I can't wait!
