Fans of true crime are going to love this. Although Marilyn Monroe's untimely death was officially ruled a probable suicide, some people believe there's more to the story than that. And now, it's time to take a deep dive into what could have happened. A new true crime podcast about Marilyn just launched, and we can't wait to unpack the first episode.

  • The podcast is called "The Killing of Marilyn Monroe," and it sounds so interesting.

    It includes an analysis of Marilyn's relationships with influential men in America ... and it's definitely interesting. After all, Marilyn's become an icon and has still been such a huge part of our pop culture in America. Even though she died decades ago in 1962, it's worth exploring what was going on in her life before her death for sure.
