Episode 064: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

Beauty and the Bitch GOES THERE (like Degrassi); this week we are taking on true crime and one CRAZY case in particular.

The Golden State Killer was arrested for his crime spree (circa 70’s-80’s) just this year, thanks to advanced DNA technology. Michelle McNamara unfortunately didn’t live to witness justice. She passed away in 2017, but her book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer was published posthumously. Her desire to help get this case solved and bring an end to the living terror still felt by the GSK’s victims was inspiring. She is a wordsmith like no other, as well as an amazing journalist and investigator.

Naturally we’ve got (some of) the facts, the jokes (yes, we even joke about this), the recommendations, and everything else ya need!


Mic want’s you to check out Castle Rock (on HULU). He also plugs “his personality, which is effervescent”…. OKAY GURL.

Morgan for sure wants you to read “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” (IT’S SO GOOD Y’ALL). ALSO: Check out the Paul Holes episode (#122) of My Favorite Murder. This is a great follow-up after you finish the book!
