After garnering critical acclaim, amassing over 21 million downloads and winning an iHeartRadio Podcast Award for Best Crime Podcast, “Man in the Window,” the investigative series from the L.A. Times and Wondery, is dropping two new episodes to update listeners on the story.

Reported and narrated by Times Staff Writer and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Paige St. John, the eight-part series launched in June 2019, tracing the Golden State Killer’s path of devastation through the eyes of police and his victims, while also examining how society once viewed sexual assault.

St. John has returned to the microphone with two bonus episodes that examine the capture and trial of the Golden State Killer, leading up to his recent sentencing to life in prison for killing 13 people and raping 50 in a series of break-ins spanning 10 counties in California. The podcast will reveal the untold story of how authorities caught Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. four decades after his murders began, exploring a covert operation and private DNA. A companion story by St. John is also available on latimes.com.

The new episodes are available now to L.A. Times and Wondery Plus subscribers and will be released everywhere podcasts are available Dec. 15 and Dec. 22, consecutively. Listen and subscribe here.
