SNMS Special Preview! Introducing Detective Trapp

In this special preview the boys give you another sneak peak at what the amazing audio documentary network Wondery are up to!

Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs — as a tool to elicit confessions.

Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.
