Michelle McNamara returns to creep me out about True Crime! (@truecrimediary & www.truecrimediary.com) and it's great. This is her third time back... we discuss home security and cops and criminals and crime and creeps. Her previous eps (TDF#50, #129) are where I first learn about the undiscovered killers of the world. This ep we catch up on bad guys and Michelle's life. She's hilarious. Enjoy.

This month's shows have been sponsored by MY comic book store: www.earth2comics.com They have two stores in LA, one in Sherman Oaks and One in Northridge. Go in, tell them yer a Ranger and get 10% off for listening to TDF.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network TDF is a part of. Plenty of other pods over there... check them out!
