Synopsis: Chasing Cosby, a new six-episode podcast from the Los Angeles Times, collects the first-hand accounts of women who say they were drugged and assaulted by America’s Dad. And in her own words, Andrea Constand finally gets to tell her side of the story.
It all started with Andrea Constand. She carried the burden of being the only one of the 60-plus accusers whose case could be tried in a court of law. Cosby’s now behind bars, still claiming he was wrongly persecuted.
Review: Produced by the LA Times that also brought listeners Dirty John and Detective Trapp comes a harrowing journey through fame, power, and abuse. Nicole Weisensee Egan is also the author of the book by the same title that came out in 2019. I’m not sure much needs to be said or explained about this highly publicized travesty, but, I applaud Andrea Constand’s bravery and it’s well worth listening to her voice on this matter.
