Dirty John Podcast from Los Angeles Times

Dirty John (LA Times & Wondery)

2017's breakout podcast hit

The LA Times worked with Wondery to adapt Chris Goffard’s tabloid-style deep dive about a successful Orange County businesswoman who fell for the wrong guy.

Of course we had no idea at the time it would become such a monster hit.

Now, with total downloads approaching 30 million, Dirty John isn’t just 2017’s big breakout — it continues to be successful well into 2018 as well.

The production was spearheaded by Chris and producer Karen Lowe. Ben provided some high-level guidance and helped Wondery through the launch and sensation that the show quickly became.
