HBO’s True Detective is a drama steeped in crime and mystery, but it’s also a show that made the Louisiana bayou a character as unforgettable as Rust Cohle or Marty Hart. The show comes to California for its second season and stars Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. In this podcast, the journalists of Southern California Public Radio tell you what real-life stories in and around Los Angeles inspired creator Nic Pizzolatto as he wrote the script for the new season. Go behind the scenes of the locations featured and get hints about what’s to come.

Customer Reviews

Informative and Professional

It's been a few years since I lived in L.A., but it's good to see that KPCC is still turning out quality product.
This isn't your standard fan podcast where a couple of guys sit in a living room and talk about internet theories and hot message board debates.
The first episode of WELCOME TO VINCI gives a very well put together discussion of the real life inspirations and history behind Season 2 of True Detective, which is not only a great companion to the series (giving listeners more in-depth context for the show) but is also just a fascinating discussion of a chapter in California's history.
Kudos all around to WELCOME TO VINCI's staff.

Best True Detective Podcast Out There...Trust Me, I've Checked

Wonderful companion podcast to the show True Detective. Unlike many TV podcasts, which simply summarize the show, this podccast relates the show to other stories, ideas, or topics. Very enjoyable and intersting.

The podcast we deserve

I was a huge fan of season one of True Detective, but a bit skeptical of how "good" season two could be, given the casting news and then the early reviews. After episode one though, I'm in. I was pleasantly surprised and think we TD fans can look forward to a solid season. So, with a lot of negative criticism from some other podcasts and websites, I was having trouble finding an outlet that shared my newfound enthusiasm for the show and the world it's set in. A lot of premature negativity and unfair comparison with season one out there. It's early, but I think Welcome to Vinci is the answer I was looking for. Not a recap and review podcast, but one that examines the settings and context of the show and will enrich the viewing experience. I can't wait to hear more.
