A Crime In Six Scenes

There is a new crime podcast in town. In a town that actually invented the bloody staging of crime.

One hundred years ago Hollywood made the perfect backdrop for an unsolved murder. Given our current, seemingly insatiable fascination with true crime, even better if it’s a real one. The 1922 murder of then quite prominent movie director W.D. Taylor proves ideal source material for the six-part-podcast series Murder in Hollywoodland.

I have to say, more and more do I love binging those podcast mini-series compared to monthly or weekly shows.

Structured as a whodunit and paced like a thriller, the story unfolds with re-created snippets from the leading actors who knew him best, including Charlie Chaplin and Mary Miles Minter.

And the question that lurks in every corner is not only who is responsible but how much did the studios know?
