Life is Short with Justin Long

Life is Short with Justin Long

<p>Hi, I’m Justin Long. I was raised by an actor and a philosophy professor, which gave me an insatiable curiosity for human behavior.

In my new podcast, I’m so lucky to be talking to some of our greatest actors, musicians, athletes, and thinkers. I’ll ask them deep, meaningful questions like: What’s your favorite emoji? And, How do you get most out of life before you die? </p>... Show More

Murder in Oregon
Murder in Oregon
In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. The murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They believe Francke had uncovered a trail of corruption in the prison system— one that led to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long journey, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underworld to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?
