The investigative journalist tells us about her favourite podcasts
Back in 2005, Nicole Weisensee Egan began researching Bill Cosby's sex crimes when others in the news industry backed off. Her exhaustive reporting helped break the story worldwide, and her 2019 book, Chasing Cosby explored 'The Downfall of America's Dad'. Produced by LA Times Studios, her podcast of the same name now explores how he got away with it for so long and tells the story of Andrea Constand, the first survivor of Cosby's attacks to face him in court. Here Egan tells us about Real Crime Profile and the mystery of the Smiley Face Killers.
Which podcast educates you?
Real Crime Profile. I love the way they dissect crimes and tell you what's real and not real from the various documentaries on the cases.
Which podcast makes you laugh?
I listen to the more serious ones so none of them.
Which podcast makes you angry or sad?
Real Crime Profile. I get angry when I see how manipulative some of these true crime ones can be, by leaving out key information to sway the viewer one way or another.
