When is season 3 coming out ,, Canât wait !!!!
Where are they now? Any new episodes coming soon? Miss the show.
This was a great series! You wonât be disappointed.
The hosts make it interesting, and I like the short play time.
But I am going to have to unsubscribe from all Wondery podcasts until something is done about the host of Sword & Scale.
Like most who gave this podcast an average rating, this is more like storytelling than true crime reporting. Voice acting is distracting. No interest in continuing to listen.
I am in the middle of season 1 and I am hooked I canât wait for the next!
I have been fascinated by the reporting on the Black Dahlia murders. I didn't realize so many other women in L.A. were murdered around the same time and remain unsovlved today. This show is very well done!
Iâm scared to leave my house! It was a beautifully written narrative that manages to be suspenseful, interesting and informative at the same time! Would highly recommend.
Was excited for this - but too many commercials for the short lengths of the episodes. Couldnât take it anymore after a couple of episodes. Great podcast if that doesnât bother you.
I thought both the black dahlia series and young Charlie was fascinating. The way the show is done and then having special guests is awesome. I canât wait for more episodes of this!! Please come soon.
Enjoy the reenactments and stories. Expert interviewers kind of boring episodes.
My wife and I love listening to this podcast. Itâs incredible well-done and we learned a lot.
Love this podcast! So good I found myself backing up to make sure I heard things correctly (probably shouldnât be listening at work, but...). Iâm looking forward to hearing more true Hollywood crimes -I really like Wonderlyâs format. Also hoping Wonderly will work with LA Noir writer James Ellroy to spotlight his motherâs unsolved LA murder.
Engrossing and well done. Iâm always a little shocked when I hear ânext time onâ. It pulls you and and wonât let go.
I love this podcast so much! They did my favorite murder mystery justice. I love the host - she is awesome. I also really appreciate the special episodes where there is real dialogue going on with professionals. So good!
I liked black dahlia season! Young Charlie S-CKED! They bounced back and forth on the timeline. Made it really hard to follow. Maybe if you know the story you might like it. If you donât know much DONâT WASTE YOUR TIME
Great story telling with actors makes for a fun listen.
Very interesting shows and I love the parts that are like the old radio shows. The panel discussion about these cases are extremely interesting and entertaining. Keep up the good work.
Too much voice acting ( bad voice acting) and layers of noise birds chirping found this to be mind numbingly boring
Liked it fine until they started pushing episodes of other Wondery tripe into my feed in lieu of producing content consistently. If I wanted to listen to Young Charlie I would subscribe to it myself. At this point I am not going to listen to it as a matter of principle because they keep pushing it into my feed, and it has substantially lowered my opinion of Hollywood & Crime. This is the second time I've unsubscribed from this OTHERWISE PERFECTLY FINE podcast because of irritating unwanted advertisements of their other podcasts through this feed between seasons/episodes. Get your act together, Wondery.
Unfortunately this podcast is quite corny. I would prefer a single narrator instead of the dramatizations.
The show is good, but the voice acting is over-done and distracting.
This is an interesting true crime podcast focused on old Hollywood/Los Angeles. The voice acting in some of the reenactments is a little over the top, but not enough of an issue to drop it from 5 stars. The narrator is really good, and sounds like she is telling a story, rather than sounding like she is reading a script, which is a plus. All the episodes (at least in the first 7 I have listened to so far) tie together, so start at the very beginning to ensure it all makes sense!
Really enjoying Hollywood & Crime. I love that itâs done like a radio play, with actors reading lines of the police, suspects, and witnesses, with the narration of the thread of the stories.
Please find another narrator. These story descriptions sound really interesting but I just canât listen to this voice.
A great introspective look into the black dahlia case. Entertaining and factual.
This is one of my favorite podcasts!!
I have always been interested in the Black Dhalia but I have never taken the time to look into other than Hodel theory. I thought that was a good explanation but this series make a great argument for a serial killer. Anyone interested in classic Hollywood, true crime, and/or criminal investigation would love this. I look forward to more similar topics.
Loved learning the history of the Black Dahlia murders and LA during that time.
One word comes to mind Riveting! If we had forgotten that gruesome gory night and the shrill screeches that haunted an entire generation worldwide, your memory is awakened as you are lured in!A journey that is thrilling and exciting until your moral compass finds true north, but you refuse to change course!
I enjoy the podcast. I enjoy the concept and old time radio program feel. But the voice acting... omg... some of them are terrible. The women in particular. They very much sound like theyâre reading the script.
This is one of the best podcasts Iâve listened to!
Professionally presented, which means no personal digressions or inappropriate laughter, plus its well researched and for those of us that love stories of Old Hollywood and true crime, a riveting podcast. Hope thereâs a season 3 coming our way.
I like the mix of historic documentary and dramatization. Iâm always left wanting more.
Interesting well presented.
Just discovered this podcast and have put all my other podcasts on hold as I listen to every episode from season one. Well worth it! Keep up the good work.
I enjoyed the subject matter very much, but I couldn't get past the acting. It was absolutely terrible, and for me it made the pocasts unlistenable. I was able to get through the first eight episodes, then I had to call it quits and unsubscribe.
First of all, I don't understand why so many people are receiving this before even listening to it!The information is interesting and well presented, but the character actors are terrible. It throws the whole thing off. But if you can get past that, it's worth a listen!
Iâve recently become a sucker for true crime stories. Plus Iâm a huge fan of the game LA Noir and history! This true crime podcast brings all my loves together! Plus what a better killer name then the werewolf killer? Great! I also live in LA and itâs fun when they mention landmarks Iâve been too.
This podcast is sort of perfectly bland. It's interesting, but not so interesting that it keeps me up at night binging. I've actually been listening to it to go to sleep. The narrator sounds like what I imagine the narrator of an instructional video in flight attendant school would sound like. Voice actors, which are usually an instant turn off for me, aren't actually that bad. A little annoying but not overwrought or overused. It's a solid story and a good staple for when I don't want to listen to anything too topical or intense.
Can't even listen anymore, acting should be natural not over the top and forced, the acting in this show is cringeworthy.
The recreations are good and the information is very well relayed. Iâm taking away two full stars because the ads play at a much higher volume, they happen too often, and are the old-school type of ad where a third person reads boring copy.
I love this podcast! I love the narrators voice! Itâs enthralling! The storylines are fascinating! Itâs interesting to find out why these people committed such horrendous crimes!
So interesting and love listening to it!
Like most of the other critical reviews, I'm having a hard time getting into the dramatization. Not sure if it's the actors themselves (they DO over-act at some points) or the format in particular. Maybe I'm too used to myriad other True Crime pods that don't have dramatization, and it's just a matter of taste. The narrator, however, is a treat to listen to. Love her voice and delivery.
Wow - so good!
