The fifth episode of true-crime podcast Truth and Lies: The Boston Strangler just dropped, featuring a conversation with Keira Knightley and Carrie Coon, two of the stars of Hulu's new film The Boston Strangler.
The podcast is the first collaboration between ABC Audio and 20th Century Studios, and is hosted by award-winning journalist and author Dick Lehr. It features ABC News archive material from the case and new interviews with relatives of those involved.
Knightley and Coon respectively play Record-American newspaper reporters Loretta McLaughlin and Jean Cole, the journalists who tracked the brutal murders that terrorized Boston in the 1960s.
"I'd heard of it, but I didn't know anything about it," English actress Knightley tells ABC Audio of the case. "So the script was the first time that I'd actually really known anything. And then [I] went, 'Wow, look at these two women. This is amazing.' And then sort of did some Googling and went, 'Oh, they ... have been completely left out of most of the things written about it.'"
20th Century Studios is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
