Connelly shares his experiences of working on the show, and offers Harry Bosch fans an idea of what they can expect from the much-anticipated series.
I'm a long time listener to Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series, and recently watched all the Bosch season 1 episodes in about a week. What a great series. Then, we get these podcasts "GIVEN" to us with behind the scenes. How lucky we are. I have listened to the first 2 and will listen to the other 4 starting tomorrow morning because I finished a "re-listen" of "City of Bones" today. I'm working my way through all the books. If you are a fan, you don't want to miss these podcasts. However, watch Season 1 before listening, then watch the Season again...we're going to soon.
