What’s the podcast about?
Rodney Alcala seemed just like your ordinary bachelor. He fooled everyone—from employers to prison psychiatrists. No one suspected that Rodney would be one of the most infamous serial killers of his time, especially after his charming performance on one of the most popular game shows ever to hit television.
The Dating Game Killer is a podcast from Wondery following Rodney Alcala, a serial killer who was suspected of murdering 130 victims over the span of 11 years. Rodney Alcala was sentenced to the death penalty after a jury decided he was guilty of committing five murders in California over the span of 1977 to 1979.
The podcast details the events that took place up to his final sentencing in 2010.
