Based on a True Crime

Minisode: Robert the Doll & Child’s Play

October 20, 2017

In this special Halloween minisode, we tell the story of Robert the Doll, the creepy real-life inspiration for the murderous Chucky in "Child's Play" (1988).

Based on a True Crime is a podcast where Chelsea’s love of true crime and David’s love of horror movies intersect. Each week we will be discussing murders and/or mysteries, along with the pop culture they have spawned.
