The Dearly Departed Podcast explores the dark side of Hollywood history. It is led by famed Hollywood historian Scott Michaels -- who operates LA's Dearly Departed Tours and FindADeath.com, and who has been featured as an expert on E! Entertainment multiple times, as well as in his own documentaries like The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter -- and co-hosted by filmmaker Mike Dorsey (The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter, Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders, Demon House). Every two weeks we will explore a different Hollywood death or other dark and fascinating story from Tinseltown's sordid history!
