The Miami Chronicles
Welcome to The Miami Chronicles. Season One is titled "Booby Trap" - a true crime podcast about the murder of a 14-year old boy in the suburbs of North Miami Beach, Florida, during the summer of 1979. Told by one of the victim’s friends, the story centers around the death of Boy Scout Richard Brush Jr., who was killed by a booby trap device set up by his scoutmaster, Carmine ‘Chuck’ Falco, in Falco’s home. The police wrote it off as a break-and-enter gone wrong, but neighborhood secrets would soon reveal there's much more to the story than meets the eye.

A Unique True Crime Podcast
If you like stories like Stand By Me and are looking for true crime without the sensationalist elements, give this a listen. In this program, you really get to know the people involved and have sympathy for them all while learning a great deal about coming of age in Miami in the 70’s.

I am really enjoying this podcast. Not only is true crime my favorite subject in television and books, but now I’ve found a gem of a podcast. I listened to the first 3 episodes and the anticipation of each Wednesday is worth the wait.
