About the Podcast
The RFK Tapes is an audio documentary series that takes a new look at the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, a case authorities have claimed for the last fifty years was open and shut. Sirhan Sirhan was captured at the scene, gun in hand. He admitted to the crime and is serving a life sentence. But some say there’s evidence that points to a larger conspiracy. Over the course of ten episodes, The RFK Tapes will use original police tapes, other rare recordings, and new interviews with the people who were there to try to understand what happened on June 5, 1968. From the creators of Crimetown and Cadence13 and hosted by Zac Stuart-Pontier (Crimetown) and Bill Klaber (author, Shadow Play).
