Larger Than Life
About the Podcast
This is the story of notorious street racer “Big Willie” Robinson, the unifying bond of fast cars and their promise of salvation and the good and bad that can go down when you unleash them on the streets of L.A. It’s the story of a flawed man who accomplished more than even he could have imagined even as he bent the truth to help achieve it. Reported by Daniel Miller.
