    Why?

    The overall story is very intriguing. However, it does not make sense how the host pronounces “Tamar” incorrectly. Tamar’s children and siblings pronounce it differently from the host. It should be consistent. Names are not always pronounced how they are indicated in the dictionary and it makes sense that those closest to Tamar knew how her name was pronounced.There was a point when Steve Hodel described a case he was once involved with regarding a serial rapist-this did not even pertain to this podcast. I found the inclusion of this odd.It is difficult for the listener to recognize voices. When a person hasn’t spoken in a while, it should be announced who they are. Some parts are hard to follow because of this.

    Different path

    I thought it was another Black Dahlia documentary but this really went through so much more! Crazy to think it’s still unsolved but it also shares how damaged this family is from a horrible person.

    An Opener

    I was hesitant to listen to another story about the Black Dahlia. All I can say is WOW! The LAPD ought to be held accountable for not allowing this case to be solved. I literally was hooked from the first episode and binged listened until the very end. Excellent podcast.

    Listener Beware

    Although there is a warning of disturbing content, they should have stated that it is of an explicit and sexual nature. This podcast is not suitable for anyone who has experienced sexual abuse and is triggered by similar stories. That is my only complaint as one cannot assume that this goes beyond the description of the murder. Well produced and the hostesses have nice voices to listen to and the story is intriguing. Skip the episode “Traumatic Reenactment” if you have a sensitive disposition or have been unsettled by previous episodes. This one is particularly heavy. This is not a light-hearted podcast, but it is truly intriguing, especially if you enjoy true-crime. It is a unique perspective of the existing family that had to deal with the facing the dark corners of the past. I wish them health and happiness.

    You haven’t heard it all

    I thought I had seen and heard everything about the Black Dalia. I kind of rolled my eyes thinking “another Black Dalia podcast”. I was so wrong! This content is so good and I’m now convinced the killer has been found and named. Fascinating! Don’t listen to the haters in the comments just listen.

    Shocking!

    My favorite podcast to date. Some moments I had to pause it to just breathe. Other moments I smiled listening to the family talk. Other times I was in near tears. Unimaginable, just crazy to think about. It is so well done.

    Amazing & Informative

    I’ve always been very curious and interested in the Black Dahlia murder I don’t know why. It always made me wonder why and how they’d never caught the person that had killed her. This podcast was amazing and caught my short attention span all day. Learning about the family and more details about this case was great.

    EXTRAORDINARY

    The lengths that this family has had to go to is unreal. Steve Hodel is an American hero, and immense credit is due to the great grandchildren and other family members who managed to keep their sanity in the midst of the atrocity that is the legacy of George Hodel. I’m firmly convinced of George’s guilt given the evidence presented. This goes well beyond a true crime fix and acutely exposes the pain and suffering that one man’s madness inflicted on not just Elizabeth Short, but the world. This podcast is nothing short of staggering.

    Extraordinary Storytelling

    This is one of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. The attention to the detail of the story from each person who spoke for this podcast is extraordinary. Thank you for making a podcast that focuses on the stories of the people affected by the legacy of a terrible murder rather than on the gruesome details of the murder itself. And thank you to the Hodel family for telling your remarkable story. Your strength, courage, and resilience is inspiring.
