Show Notes

Another Sydnee classic: True crime meets medical science. Join us to learn all about how this modern technique - genetic genealogy - was used to catch the notorious Golden State Killer, Joseph DeAngelo. We'd like to dedicate this episode to the 74 victims whose lives were taken or forever altered by this monster, and to the scientists and detectives who gave a great deal of themselves to catch him.
