The Fit Feed by Reed

The Fit Feed by Reed podcast is the health & fitness podcast for the female millennial. Step off the roller coaster of yo-yo diet & fitness trends with sustainable solutions to make positive habit change. Learn to stress less, eat smart, and move more with me, Coach Reed, and the fit-for-life minded guests I bring onto the show. We’ll tackle one diet myth at a time, give you tactical ways to make change in your life, and deliver it all with a light-hearted quirk that you just can’t stop listening to. As I like to say, it’s an educational audio treat. Better said… like a lollipop for your ears.

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
