New episodes post every Wednesday. When Elizabeth Short, also known as The Black Dahlia, was brutally killed in 1947, it gripped the entire country. More than 70 years later, it remains America's most infamous unsolved murder. Many believe Dr. George Hodel was the killer, thanks to an investigation by Hodel's own son. But murder is just part of the Hodel family story, one filled with horrifying secrets that ripple across generations. Now, through never-before-heard archival audio and first-time interviews, the Hodel family opens up to reveal their shocking story. In this eight-part documentary series, sisters Rasha Pecoraro and Yvette Gentile, the great grand daughters of George Hodel, take a deep dive into their family history to try to figure out what really happened, and where do they all go from here? Root of Evil is the companion podcast to TNTs limited series I Am the Night. Inspired by the true story of the Hodel family, the series stars Chris Pine and comes from acclaimed Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins.

One of my favorites!

This has become one of my weekly favorites to listen to! Such great knowledge of the people and person involved. I love that the great granddaughters are telling the story and that they have had other family members on there to first hand tell the experience they had!


The story telling is excellent. Production value...excellent. The podcast has had me hanging on to every word. The story has me rethinking my whole view on human nature. Worth the listen. Highly recommended.

Great story, a bit overproduced

Cut some of the music, and just tell the story please!
