The Horror of Dolores Roach

A Fiction and Drama podcast
 21 people rated this podcast
With blood on her hands, the infamous Dolores Roach has fled the recent shocking destruction in Washington Heights and gone into hiding deep under New York City in an abandoned subway tunnel. But she’s not alone underground, and her dark night of the soul is interrupted by an extremist faction of similarly self-exiled tunnel-dwellers whose space she's invaded. Facing re-incarceration back above ground, but pushed to the limits of shame, paranoia, lust, hunger, and depraved entrepreneurialism below it, Dolores is the outcast of the outcasts again - until she takes her survival in the tunnels into her own Magic Hands. Season 2 of The Horror of Dolores Roach is written and directed by Aaron Mark and stars Daphne Rubin-Vega, Donnell Rawlings, and Amy Ryan.

Fun and entertaining without feeling like it was trying too hard to be cryptic the way a lot of the fiction podcasts are going these days! Interesting characters and good acting! Keep up the good work, Gimlet.
I had no idea what I was actually in for when I first heard this. Great acting and a gruesome story push this idea off the cliff with fervor and reckless abandon, leaving the listener horrified as well as entertained. The humor scattered throughout helps to balance out the mood, but rest assured, it's an incredibly dark story. Highly recommended, especially for fans of films like Peter Yuzna's "Society" and Larry Cohen's "The Stuff!"
Dolores Roach is fresh out of prison, and fresh out of options. When Luis Batista takes her in, he sets her up with everything: a roof over her head, a job, the possibility of a future. The Horror of Dolores Roach is a real-world horror podcast with rough edges and colourful characters aplenty. No "everyman" generic characters here. No government conspiracy theorists, either. The storyline is shaped by desperation, particularly in situations born of poverty. This is an urban horror podcast done right.
