    Steve, this interview cleared up some unanswered thoughts I had over the years concerning your father’s murders!
    1. How could this man develop such tremendous ongoing hatred of women?
    2. Why do people of younger generations speak of the Dahlia, the Zodiac killings in a fictionalized genre?
    3. Why are these murders never-ending histories with no conclusion?
    To me this podcast further answered those questions (too involved to go into my thoughts here!) & will be further enlightened by your upcoming miniseries! Was very thrilled to hear you say it will mainly deal with the ongoing cover up(s) all these years by LAPD and law enforcement on so much of the CA coast, & my own beloved hometown SF😓! Looking forward to all if it! Stay well😷
    Steve….you’ve got some big times ahead before that Hawaiian beach house retirement!😉.
    PS….You might find a current true crime Netflix series (8 episodes) right up your alley….about a Boston PD murder in the 90’s: “TRIAL 4” 👌😎🌵

      Patricia O:
      Thanks as always for your insights/observations. Much appreciated.
      Yes, excited about the miniseries which will hopefully help clarify the WHY of the cover-up by LAPD.
      Expect the eventual “retirement” will likely be back up to the Great Northwest closer to my two grandchildren, Tucker and Ellen. That said, I’ve learned never to speculate too much on what’s around the next corner, especially
      when it comes to the Life and Times of a Hodel. All Best, stay safe and well.
      p.s. I’ll check out “Trial 4”.
