Inquisitor Podcast Host Chris Cella interviews Author and former LAPD Homicide Detective Steve Hodel.
Episode 1: “My father, the artist” will go live Friday, October 24th, 2014.

Last month I was approached by photo-journalist, Chris Cella with a request to do a Podcast interview. In his e-mail, Chris provided me the following impressive bio information, along with his thoughts on Podcast medium:

“I am a Documentary Cinematographer and Photographer, who has worked on 5 Continents Producing stories about Social Values, Conflict, Conservation, and Desperate Situations. My stories have been used by National Geographic, The Huffington Post, and Outside Television. I feel liberated by the Podcast medium because it frees subjects from the imposing camera and allows people to speak free and at ease. My thinking as a content creator is that a shift is happening in media consumption. I see great potential in the Podcast medium. Our show will be Produced with the accompaniment of Music, Interviews, and Sound Bites to create an all immersive listening experience. If you are familiar with shows such as RadioLab and This American Life, you may be able to imagine the effect.”

Chris and I met and did the interview, which will be hosted by Chris and broadcast as the launch program for his INQUISITOR Podcast, next week, on Friday, October 24, 2014.  Chris was very well prepared, and it was a very professional interview. Mark your calendar and tune in for this premiere podcast if you have a chance.

Chris’ Inquisitor Podcast will be up and available on October 24th, in these 3 locations: YouTubeSoundCloud, as well as in the iTunes Store.

    Hi Chris-riveting interview! Where did you get the audio from the woman who found the Dahlia body?

      Hi Pam: Chris Cella did the interview, but this is actually my website link/blog and I posted it to his podcast.
      Chris found the Betty Bersinger interview on line at the below link. Apparently she was interviewed in 1996,
      some seven years before my investigation was first published in 2003 as Black Dahlia Avenger.
