HBO's Last Call Podcast

In this official companion podcast, host Jamilah King unpacks the stories and themes of HBO’s new four-part documentary series, Last Call: When a Serial Killer Stalked Queer New York. The series tells the story of how in the early 90s, as hate crimes were on the rise and the AIDS crisis escalated, a serial killer preyed on New York City's gay men. Jamilah King speaks with guests after each episode, including co-creators Howard Gertler and Anthony Caronna, activist Ceyenne Doroshow, activist and lawyer Andrea Ritchie, as well as family members of the victims, journalists who covered the crimes, and more.
