Anyone else listening to To Live and Die in LA Season 2??  


I have quite a few true crime podcasts that I listen to, but my favorite that just had a couple of new episodes added is Your Own Backyard...Chris has done an excellent job with this one. Definitely worth checking out. 


Just finished The Apology Line because of this post--thanks for the recommendation. Good one to binge while doing chores
