Night Stalker is on Netflix, giving viewers an insight into serial killer Richard Ramirez but there are also lots of podcasts if you want an even more indepth insight.

Netflix’s new series is spread across just four episodes, so if you find you end up finishing it in a couple of nights, here are six podcasts you can listen to and learn more about Ramirez and his campaign of terror.
