Run Bambi Run

4.8/5

Critic Rating

Laurie Bembenek was a Milwaukee police officer and Playboy Club bunny before being arrested for the murder of her husband’s ex-wife, a crime she insisted she did not commit. Nicknamed “Bambi Bembenek,” she became a tabloid fixation, a feminist cause célèbre and, after she escaped from prison, an American folk hero, though she was never exonerated. Journalist and Campside Media co-founder Vanessa Grigoriadis takes a fresh look at the case Diane Sawyer called the "most glamorous murder case of the 1980s.”New episodes out every Monday. Run Bambi Run is an Apple Original podcast, produced by Campside Media.

Stephen O. • Podcast Delivery Apr 18, 2022

"Just take in the captivating world painted by Run, Bambi, Run...By age 23, Bembenek was serving a life sentence for murdering her husband's ex-wife. She escaped prison in 1990...You can't make this stuff up."

"It’s a gripping exploration of the – seemingly quite plausible – suggestion that Bembenek was framed by Milwaukee police department, against whom she was pursuing a sexual harassment case."
