Heard on Olympic & Bundy - If you're drawn to true crime shows and podcasts, you may have heard the voice of Tracy Pattin.
She is the host and co-producer of the popular Hollywood & Crime podcast by Wondery, which delves into the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short.
Known as the Black Dahlia, Short's body was found completely severed at the waist in January 1947. The first season gets into the grisly details surrounding the case, as well as the murder of more than a dozen other women who died in similar circumstances around the same time.
Most recently, Tracy's new six part series called "The Wonderland Murders" skyrocketed to No. 1 on Apple Podcasts upon being released May 17.
Tracy and writer/director Larry Brand use a docudrama style of storytelling to look at the 1981 case in which four people were brutally murdered at 8763 Wonderland Avenue — located in the Laurel Canyon section of Los Angeles. The case involves drugs, criminals and even the world's most famous porn star "on a downward and deadly spiral."
Based on the success of Tracy's projects, as well as others like "Serial" or the docuseries "Making a Murderer," it's clear that people are drawn to true crime stories.
She joined me on Olympic & Bundy to discuss this very topic, as well as the cases covered in many of her popular podcast series, her love of research and history of West Hollywood, her new political series, Women2018, documenting stories of women running for political office across the country — and more.
