I produced and sound engineered this true crime series for Audioboom. The series is based around an interview journalist Alex Hannaford recorded with Angel Resendiz - the Railroad Killer- back in 2003, in which he told Alex about additional murders. In the series we explore whether there is any truth in these confessions, and whether innocent people are serving life sentences. We reached number 1 in the Apple podcast chart and had over 3 million downloads
