This is the age of the "superfad". Products, ideas and habits that surge into our collective conscience - and frequently burn out just as fast. In this new podcast from Stuff, two of our millennial reporters dive into the crazes. Laura Walters and Katie Kenny have spent a week in a waist trainer, crammed into a tiny house and vegged out on the couch for hours of binge watching to deliver Superfad. Each episode combines lively insights and revealing personal stories from well-known New Zealanders. We also explore the important social and cultural questions raised by the rapid rise and fall of 21st century fads. Season one includes seven episodes - there's a new one every Friday.

The story behind the publication of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, by Michelle McNamara, a masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer—the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade. Featuring interviews with the author, her husband, Patton Oswalt, and others who worked to publish the book: the L.A. Magazine editor who commissioned the first long-form article about the killer, Nancy Miller, her literary agent, Dan Greenberg, her book editor, Jennifer Barth, and more. The book is described as utterly original and compelling, destined to become a true crime classic, and the story behind its publication is equally remarkable.
