On an equal parts shocking, timely, and beguiling episode of After Hours Am/The Criminal Code — True Crime Wednesdays with hosts Joel Sturgis, Eric Olsen, and Dr. Clarissa Cole — we welcome Larry Brand, filmmaker and writer of Wondery’s new #1 podcast “Young Charlie,” chronicling the life and times of Charles Manson from childhood until he sent his “family” out for a night of murder in Hollywood.
