From the L.A. Times, Chasing Cosby charts a detailed path of Bill Cosby’s transition from being seen as “America’s Dad” to a predator with an infamous past of sexual harassment and assault.
The podcast is hosted by Nicole Weisensee Egan, a journalist who broke many of the allegations against Cosby and wrote a book with the same title. While Egan’s written work may allow for more detailed coverage of Cosby’s criminal behavior, hearing the voices of those involved in this story and the women who fought to have Cosby’s actions judged in a criminal court carries a powerful emotional impact.
The show contains several graphic descriptions of sexual assault and may not be appropriate for everyone, but for those interested in the long and arduous process that went into holding Bill Cosby accountable, Egan’s reporting, interviews and use of archival recordings are riveting. CLICK FOR MORE
