It Was Simple

Client: LA Times
Role: script editing, music, production, post-production

Betty and Dan Broderick looked like the perfect couple, right up until they didn’t. After four children and nearly 15 years of marriage, as the riches they both worked for were finally within reach, he walked out and remarried his young assistant. But divorce ended the Brodericks’ marriage only on paper. “Till death do you part” turned out to be the way it would ultimately end: bitter, savage and fatal. Betty would murder Dan and his new wife in their bed in the fall of 1989. After thirty years, five bullets, two coffins and one California prison inmate No. W42477, why can’t we look away from Betty Broderick? “It was Simple: The Betty Broderick Murders,” is a four-part podcast that premieres May 26.
