As David Lee Roth said, "I heard you missed us. We're back." A one-week break gives us plenty of time to listen to stuff. And catch up on the latest news from the world of true crime.We circle back for a listen to the sophomore installment of "Ear Hustle." Thank you again to Lt. Sam Robinson for approving this story.Lara reports on the whirling dervish that is the Brendan Dassey appeal. He wins. He loses. He loses again. The "Making a Murderer" supporting player isn't going anywhere soon. Will the state give him is court-ordered re-trial or just appeal to higher and higher courts? (Sound familiar, Adnan?)Next we look at Gimlet's new podcast, "Mogul." It tells the story of hip-hop executive Chris Lighty - the most important musical figure you've never heard of. The podcast is part biography/part hip-hop history lesson. Is Lighty's life story strong enough to carry this series and can the podcast appeal to listeners unfamiliar with his music?In Crime of the Week: A Florida man sits on a gun and then exactly what you'd guess happens.Sponsors this episodeBook of the Month - Get your first book for $10 at bookofthemonth.com/CRIMEWRITERS.Hubble Contacts - Go to hubblecontacts.com to get your first two weeks of lenses for free.Lola tampons - For 60% off your first order, visit mylola.com and enter CRIME.Audible - Get a free audiobook with a 30-day trial at audible.com/crime.Harry's razors - Get your Free Trial set at to Harrys.com/crime..view more
