Is The Habitat a terrible podcast? Is the Golden State Killer caught??! And Westworld returns!
Lara picked the wrong week to go on vacation...
The panel gives their reaction to the capture of the alleged Golden State Killer. Did Michelle McNamara's I'll Be Gone in the Dark play a roll in the arrest or is it too soon to tell?
The main event: Gimlet’s new hit podcast The Habitat. This series follows six volunteers simulating a Mars mission by being cooped up together in one small shelter for a year. Is the podcast a look at the human failings inherent in a long-term space mission? Or is NASA's version of "The Real World"?
In Crime of the Week: frugivorous felons.
Our special guest this week is Patrick Hinds, host of True Crime Obsessed. (He's very enthusiastic.)
