For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.
||Introducing: Monster: The Zodiac Killer||From the team who brought you Atlanta Monster comes a new season and a new monster. Season 2 tackles the riveting story of one of the most infamous serial killers in history - the Zodiac Killer. In the late 1960s, a mysterious, faceless fugitive attacked and killed five people in San Francisco. As the murderer went about his gruesome work, he regularly mocked the police and the public by sending letters containing confusing cryptograms to the Bay Area newspapers. Throughout the exhaustive search, there were 2,500 Zodiac suspects, yet none strong enough to make an arrest and, 50 years later, the killer has never been identified.With new interviews and information, join hosts Payne Lindsey (of Up & Vanished) and Matt Frederick (of Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know) as they take a deep dive into the real story behind the headlines and new clues that may offer insight into the identity of this nameless fugitive.

Very well done
Every episode a master piece.
Not the best
Should be a great story but super annoying music thought out, too many ads and seems very unsympathetic to the victims of the story.
This is everything a podcast about crime should be. Made with integrity and intelligence. This is the new benchmark for true crime podcasts as far as I’m concerned. Thank you.
