I really hate the transitions with music and echoes. these are just big chunks of silence and wastes of time.

Description

14 months. 30 Banks. An all-access pass into the mind of one of Southern California’s most prolific bank robbers. 


On the show, Joe Loya - the so-called “Beirut Bandit” - reveals his story of transformation from abusive childhood to prolific bank robber, violent convict, ex-con, writer and ultimately, a reconciled son. 


Produced by Peabody-Award winning podcaster Ben Adair (The Sterling Affairs, Dr. Death, Reveal) at Western Sound in partnership with Acast Studios.
