In 1978, Rodney Alcala won a date on the popular TV show, The Dating Game. No one knew that he was a prolific serial killer in the middle of a cross-country murder spree. In this six-part series, co-hosts Tracy Pattin (Hollywood & Crime) and Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) take listeners on an unbelievable journey into Alcala’s twisting secret life. He hid behind normal jobs as a typesetter at a prominent newspaper and a summer camp counselor. How did this predatory monster fool employers, prison psychiatrists, and parole boards — all while committing heinous crimes from coast to coast? And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of – The Dating Game Killer.
These stories never cease to amaze me. Another serial killer who lived a completely normal life outside of the terror he brought to others. The Dating Game Killer was easy to binge and, like most true crime podcasts, had me glad that I live in a world with DNA and computers!
I give The Dating Game Killer 4.5 out of 5 stars.
