    reviewed: Root of Evil: The True Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia

    HORRIBLE

    If your looking for a good podcast that gets to the point this is not one for you. It played the same story over and over and over and over. Never ever talked about the black dahlia. Respectfully, no one cares about your family when you name the podcast the true story about the black dahlia. Y’all made the whole thing about yourselves and can’t even respect the dead by giving her the story she deserves. I HAD TO COME BACK!! I just finished and I actually can’t believe this podcast. DO NOT NAME YOUR PODCAST about something THAT IT ISNT!!! They’re lying through their teeth. Way to get click bait. Your family tragedy is absolutely horrifying but I can’t believe you would use a victim to get views on your own life changing story.

    Amazing survival story

    I am utterly gobsmacked by this production! I have always been curious about the Black Dahlia story but this was way more. The resolve of the sisters to go so personal and deep, it’s not just a story about the crime itself, and a great one at that, but how it affected the family. Their bravery and strength of spirit comes through in the last episode. A “must listen”.

    Incredible on all accounts

    Seriously might be the best podcast I’ve ever listened to . So moving and powerful . A serious reminder of how deeply generational trauma can affect all of us . I am blown away by the resiliency of this family !

    Great new podcast

    Love this podcast! I think that they tell scary stories really well because they bring the light to all of the stories. I am only 17 years old but this podcast is great for me because I don’t like scary things but the sisters don’t just talk about the scary stuff they talk about the good in everything. I would recommend this podcast to anyone and everyone who wants to start listening to podcasts.

    Best when focused on the crimes

    A mostly excellent podcast. An absolutely amazing look at the Black Dahlia murder, and George Hodel’s likely involvement. also incredibly interesting (and disturbing) to hear about George’s other heinous activities and his effect on the Hodel family. unfortunately the podcast gets off track when it focuses on the modern day family too much. And there are nearly entire episodes of this. I don’t mean to be insensitive, but hearing the current day family members reconnect with one another just isn’t that interesting from my point of view. Otherwise, a solid true crime podcast.

    Breaking the cycle

    I stumbled upon this podcast while browsing true crime. One thing that caught my eye was that Fauna grew up in Sparks, NV. Born and raised in the Reno/Sparks area, I was immediately drawn to the story and what a story it is! I was completely dumbfounded at how the most horrendous crimes against women, men, and children were all played out in one single family. The most beautiful thing to have come from these survivors stories is the resilience to break the cycles of abuse and expose their perpetrators over 70 years later. Not only is this story fascinating, but it goes to show that even in the worst part of humanity there is love. Thank you so much for sharing your story!

    Heartbreaking

    This was very hard to listen to. It literally gave me nightmares. However, the Hodel story is important and a cautionary tale. The survivors are so brave and I hope that doing this podcast was cathartic for them and it gives hope to others.

    A deep dive into one families trauma

    I commend the families for their openness during this story. It was honestly inspiring to hear them come together after such terrible traumas. It’s a hard thing to listen to… there’s a lot to unpack here and it was darker than I anticipated. However the story is told and there is grace given by the survivors.

    Hard Listen but I hope things work out

    Really hope this family gets the best from here on out, they have had a hard history to live through. Their reunion episode was so cathartic after learning the history. I am glad they have eachother.

    Disturbing but well done

    This is a story that needs to be told. It is shocking and revolting, and no fault of the victims. I hope they continue to have lives filled with love and healing. Also, Elizabeth Short’s memory should be worth much more than the grisly scene at the end of her life. The podcast itself is well-done. I had no idea there were so many layers to this story.

    Good story…..

    But poorly done. Way too slow at times. Could have been done in half the episode. Tragic story though.

    Incredible

    The Hodel family are incredible resilient in the face of such tragedy. They are also so gracious to share their story with the world. This podcast had me on the edge of my seat with fear, and crying with a heavy heart. So very well done. I wish them all healing.
